First, a little background about our organization… Arlington Kids' Kloset has been operating as an independent local non-profit since 2005. We provide school clothing—including socks, underwear and shoes—to Arlington, Darrington, and Lakewood School District students whose families qualify for free or reduced lunch at school. We do this in a retail store environment, where children can pick out their own clothes with their families. The only thing that is missing is a cash register! Each school year, Arlington Kids' Kloset provides quality clothing for thousands of low-income students.

Arlington Kids' Kloset receives no government funding or public dollars—100% of our budget comes from private donations.

What you do: Plan, Promote, Collect, and Deliver!
