Catie's Closet drive


The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an increased need for support. In fact, requests for basic essentials has risen 100%. Your organized drive will stock our closets with new and gently used clothing, toiletries and shoes so that students have everything they need to feel they are equipped to succeed in school.

The remote and hybrid in-person school model is much different than anyone has experienced in the past. Students need your support now more than ever. Your clothing & toiletry donations become vital to achieving the goal of reducing chronic absenteeism and improving graduation rates.

We will provide you with a customized flyer that you can post, print, and share both internally and through the individual networks of your employees. Imagine the impact you can make when 5, 10 or 50 of your employees reach out to their friends, family, and other social networks. Together you can clothe a child or an entire classroom!

“I always heard great things about Catie’s Closet, but when I went to volunteer at the Dracut facility last year – I was blown away. The self-esteem & smiles this program brings to school aged kids of all ages is phenomenal! I can’t wait to get back to help.”

“Our closet gets used every single day…the impact that it has on individual children is life changing! Children arrive to school with clothes that are worn, dirty or don’t fit right. A trip to Catie’s Closet and a quick change of clothing can turn a child’s day completely around. I have witnessed children walk in with their head down and leave skipping down the hallway thanks to their new clothes from Catie’s Closet. Parents are often brought to tears when we inform them that we have this wonderful resource and can provide them with clothing for their children discreetly and free of charge. Thanks so much for all you do for our school community”
