Spring cleaning is a chance to help local kids

As you clean out your closets this spring, a Lynnwood-based non-profit would like the clothes your kids don’t need anymore.

Clothes For Kids could use gently-used children’s clothing including shorts, t-shirts, swimsuits, dresses and flip flops. The charity provides wardrobes for low-income families.

“Providing spring and summer clothing to students in preschool through twelfth grade allows their families to focus their limited resources in other areas and helps students to end the school year on a positive note,” said Program Manager Nancy Laird-Burris.

In the first four of months of operation this year, Clothes for Kids served more than 2,500 children.

“We operate on a shoe-string budget, it is through our generous clothing donors that we are able to continue to grow our services and meet the needs of even more children,” said Board President Rob Schwertley.

He said used clothing helps to fill in the much-needed sizes and current styles that students like to have.
