Charles River Apparel has been a major support for Catie's Closet over the years.
Charles River Apparel have been proud sponsors of our annual A Night to Open Doors gala and our annual end-of-summer Fill the Bus campaign. Last year during Fill the Bus, nearly a dozen Charles River Apparel employees joined us on the Greenway in Boston to volunteer their hard work and time organizing and sorting through thousands of donated items! We thank you for your ongoing support and the major impact you've made in the lives of children we serve.
In addition to supporting our Gala and Fill the Bus fundraisers, they made an incredible in-kind donation- hundreds of their famous Women's New Englander Waterproof Rain Jackets. We distributed these jackets to the J.G. Pyne Arts School and Bartlett Community Partnership School. To create unity, all girls in grade 4 through 8 at the J.G. Pyne Arts School received matching jackets. The rest of the coats were donated to the Bartlett Community Partnership School's track team. Thanks to Charles River's generosity, these girls have a durable, great-looking jacket that they're proud to wear and that will keep them warm and dry for years to come.
