Coins For Kids

I'm just a kid, what difference can I make? The truth is, kids make an enormous difference with their time, talents and resources, and CFK's annual Coins For Kids Drive is one important way to do it. Originally conceived as a campaign about "kids helping kids", this program has grown over the years to be one of the leading fundraisers for Clothes For Kids. Last year, children helped raise more than $32,000 for kids in need. During the months of March - June, we encourage kids to save their spare change and set it aside for kids like them, but in need of help. This will help support more than 4,000 low-income youth and their families in Snohomish County, and kids are leading the way. And it's not just for kids! You and your whole family can help. Challenge friends to save more change than you. It can be fun and this campaign allows us to continue to provide children with quality clothing, educational resources and build their self esteem while encouraging them to go to school and complete their education. Contact us for specific ideas of how you can help!

A testimonial from a client

"I wanted to share with you how very very thankful I am for your organization and the generosity of your supporters. We have had a rough year with my husband being amongst the ranks of laid off employees. When winter was approaching and my kids coats were not going to make it another year I was relieved to come to the shop and find a perfect fit for them both. They left so very happy and talked all week about the nice ladies at the Clothes for Kids store who give clothes and coats to kids who don't have money for new ones! They were both thrilled to be able to pick out items they were proud to show off and wear and came home to give their father a fashion show. The coats have served them so very well and kept them warm and dry in all the rare snow and have even been admired by many. What a relief it was to know my kids dressers were well stocked when I was juggling our other financial burdens. From the bottom of our hearts...Thank you."
