We celebrated our year’s successes and triumphs at our 6th annual “A Night to Open Doors” Gala and Silent Auction. Over 380 community leaders and loyal supporters joined together under one roof to surpass our fundraising goal and raise over $150,000 to aid in filling, sustaining, and building new closets. From the evening’s sponsors to our donors, volunteers and attendees, please know that we simply cannot operate the way we do without you by our side. Thank you for helping celebrate our current and future successes and honoring Catie’s memory by helping thousands of children every single day.

Catie's Closet hosted its first annual "Fill the Bus" campaign during the summer of 2016. The Catie's Closet school bus traveled to companies, organizations and communities throughout MA & NH on Friday and Saturday, August 12 and 13. Throughout our journey, we exceeded our goal and collected over 25,000 pieces of clothing and toiletries and raised over $8,000. This was our first Fill the Bus event and we were completely overwhelmed by your outreach and willingness to help students succeed. A tremendous thank you to our compassionate sponsors, gracious employees and generous community. You made this possible. To find our more about Fill the Bus, click here!
