Head to Susan Hanover Designs on Thursday, March 22 and shop for a good cause, Clothes To Kids of Fairfield County whose mission is to provide new and quality used clothing to low-income or in-crisis school age children in Fairfield County, Connecticut—free of charge.
Susan Hanover Designs is located at 89 Greenwich Ave. During the event on Thursday, March 22, which runs from 4:00pm to 8:00pm, 20% of proceeds from sales will be donated to Clothes to Kids of Fairfield County.
When a family is struggling to provide basic necessities, the children may be worried, even panicked, about going to school. They don’t have clothes that fit, and worse, they don’t have clothes that make them feel like they fit in. Without proper clothing, a child can suffer emotionally, physically, and academically.
The organization’s goal is that every school age child has quality clothing to attend school with confidence needed to achieve academic success.
Each eligible child may visit the CTKF Store twice in a 12-month period, to shop for a full week’s worth of school clothes. This includes 5 tops, 4 bottoms (pants, shorts or skirts), 1 dress (optional), 1 jacket, 1 pair of shoes and 7 pieces of new underwear and 7 pairs of socks. CTKF also provides clothing appropriate for the different seasons. Extra items, such as pajamas, backpacks, accessories, and toys may also be available.
Volunteer shopping assistants work with families to help them find complete wardrobes for each child. Families are welcome to shop with or without the children.
Volunteers have created an exceptional shopping experience. The store, located in Boys & Girls Club of Stamford, Yerwood Clubhouse is bright, cheerful, and inviting. They stock a wide variety of clean, stylish, top quality clothing–arranged by size and type–so shoppers can browse to select what they like best. And of course, dressing rooms are provided to ensure a comfortable fit.
