Earlier this week, as the school year was just coming to an end, the JFS Children’s Clothing Closet distributed 40 preordered clothing packages to children in grades K-5 at both the Woodrow Wilson and Brophy Elementary Schools in Framingham.
This spring clothing distribution is part of our Ready-to-Wear program, which launched in December 2018. Ready-to-Wear works with families in our community to provide a seasonal response to clothing needs and are specifically catered to children’s sizes and needs.
For this spring distribution, 40 children—14 at Brophy Elementary and 26 at Woodrow Wilson—were given spring and summer clothing, including sandals, sneakers, shorts, T-shirts, pajamas and more. The clothing was distributed in individual packages based on order forms that were submitted by the families in late May.
We thank our community partners for the donations of clothing and our volunteers, including JFS of Metrowest board members, staff and volunteers for preparing the orders. With your help and support, these students are all prepared with the clothes they need to have a happy and fun summer.
The JFS Children’s Clothing Closet looks forward to additional Ready-to-Wear distribution events, which occur on a seasonal basis, and is always accepting order forms on a rolling basis from our clients.
We are always in need of donations of kids’ (K-5) clothing (gently used and/or new) and volunteers. Please contact Maggie Kenney, JFS program specialist, at 508-875-3100 ext. 320 or email@example.com.
