We are Sending Out an Urgent Summer SOS!

While many students are getting ready for a fun summer filled with adventures and memories, those experiencing crises
are preparing for months without resources that help meet their basic needs.

Catie’s Closet continues to serve children through summer via our SOS Urgent Response Program and we are
experiencing an overwhelming increase in demand.

We need your help to ensure children have access to basic essentials this summer and beyond.
Start a peer-to-peer fundraiser or make a donation today to answer our urgent Summer SOS.

There are many ways you can get involved with Catie’s Closet and make a lasting impact on local youth in your community.
