seeking individuals, social groups & companies 
to host drives for clothing & Toiletries
throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. 

Your clothing & toiletry donations are vital to our mission of
reducing chronic absenteeism and improving graduation rates.

We need to collect 50,000 pieces of gently used clothing & new, full-sized toiletries
to stock 80 schools this September.

Hosting a charitable drive benefits both the students we support and the communities where you live or work in a number of ways:

  1. The students: Items donated are available to students, free of charge, within our 80 Catie's Closets.

  2. Your community: The act of giving can encourage others to answer their call to action.

  3. Your home: Excellent opportunity for summer cleaning - donate any youth or teen appropriate clothing that you or your child might have outgrown.

  4. Yourself: It feels good to know you're efforts are supporting local children in your home state who need the most help.

 
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
