Child is living in hotel. Child had urinary accident a couple of weeks ago and dad requested soap and water to clean her up with due to none at home. Shoes have multiple holes and soles falling off. Child is also obese so difficult for mom and dad to buy clothes appropriate for school.
I wanted to let you know we received the donation for this young boy. He was SO excited to receive all the items. At first, he didn’t realize they were all for him. When I told them they were for him, he smiled ear to ear. He LOVED the shoes and couldn’t wait to put them on. The next day at school, he looked so nice. He told his teacher right away about his new clothes. Thank you once again for your amazing support.
Thank you! The Nike's are beaten down and smelly because he has worn them all year even though they are way too big. I thought he would get a pair for Christmas but that didn't work out and the kids are beginning to move away from him because odor is becoming strong so I will welcome anything!
Yesterday a child came in with holes in her shirt and was wearing two pair of pants because the outside pants had holes in them AND she had a hole in her socks. She was a mess. I did reach out to her guardian who said she would really appreciate the help. She is not a girly girl and I made note of that on her referral. The other referral is for a 3rd grader who needs a coat only. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you so much! I am sure that as the season changes the family will be thankful for the clothing. Thank you for all that you & everyone at COK do to support the community.
We had a students’ home burn to the ground today. Luckily everyone is okay but the family lost everything. On top of that, today was his birthday (12 years old). I have attached a referral for the 5th grade student.
I received a box from my child's school. I really appreciate it so much - a blessing. Thanks so very much. This is so great to have an organization to help the kids & families of our community.

We also want to acknowledge, and thank, your organization for the wonderful service you provide. Sincerely, Little Grace, Betty Warrington
I am writing to tell you how thrilled we were with our box for Sophia. She was so happy with all the things you chose for her. I think her favorite may be the beautiful blue coat with matching hat and gloves. She has worn it even on days that it wasn't needed! As her teacher, I can't tell how wonderful it is to see her all fresh and clean each day. I have set up a personal hygiene program for her here at school. She takes a shower each morning and we do her hair as well. She actually told me that she looked so pretty and smelled clean. That made me happy for her! Thank you again and again.
