Vice - President - Penny Peeters
I am so proud to be associated with Arlington's Kid's Kloset for the past 16 years and have been on the board of AKK since 2006. It has grown from a wish and a prayer to an important part of three school districts providing clothing to children free of charge. Our board is a dedicated group of individuals all doing their part to support our community's children. Some of my responsibilities included the branding, design, newsletters and Facebook for AKK. Being a business owner of Penway Media in Arlington for twenty five years and continuing after retirement helping the nonprofit AKK evolve and grow into an organization that supports the basic necessities every child deserves.
Secretary - Tori Emerson
Arlington Parent and Community Member
My name is Tori Emerson and I'm pleased to be serving as Arlington Kids' Kloset Secretary. I am a substitute teacher and have a child in the Arlington School District which has opened the opportunities of helping out on the Citizens' Committee and providing support and training for local PTAs in the northwest area of Washington State as the current Washington State PTA Area E Vice President. I am excited to be a part of Kids' Kloset!
Treasurer - Kimberly Meno
Co-Founder of Kids' Kloset
As former teacher at Arlington High School, I am committed to improving the self-esteem of students by investing in Kids' Kloset, which provides trendy, quality clothing to students in need. Everyone should feel good about what they are wearing to school and if just one person's self-esteem is improved by 'shopping' at Kids' Kloset, we are making a difference in our community. I love the kids and want to make Kids' Kloset a friendly, inviting and fun place for students who need our services.

Member-at-Large - Laura Meno
Student Representative, Arlington High School
My mom helped start Kids' Kloset when I was two years old. Ever since I was old enough to count out pairs of underwear into bags and rubber band socks together, I have been volunteering at Kids' Kloset. I have organized volunteer groups for NHS, shopped for clothing, scheduled appointments, sorted laundry, served families and many other tasks. I have served on the Arlington Kids' Kloset BOD for two years.
