Can't thank Clothing our KDS enough for all they do for families at Phillip C. Showell Elementary. We just had a family lose everything in a house fire and CLOTHING OUR KIDS was who I thought of first. I KNEW they would come through for our family. Thank you - Thank you - Thank you!!

Hello Mary and Helpers, We are into the first month of school and the clothes at my school are reaching a low point! Thank you so much for your organization. I had a helper in this week on the day that there were three clothing accidents and with my depleted stock, my helper said, "What are you going to do?" I thought, "I don't know" and then I looked up and saw the Clothing Closet information on my bulletin board--I had forgot that I put it up on my bulletin board with the whirl wind of activities happening at the beginning of school. I am so grateful and appreciative for your help. Thank you so much and God bless your organization. Nurse Daisey:-) Richard A. Shields Lewes, DE

It was overwhelming to receive so many beautiful clothes. Very moving to see the reaction of mothers and children which could never afford them. Thank you and God bless your work Sister María

Dear Mary and Clothing Our Kids Staff, Thank you again for being so efficient and fast. A student attending my school was in need of a coat and you responded right away and this student will have a warm coat, gloves, and a hat just in time for the wintery weather predicted for this weekend. You also replenished my supply of undergarments due to all the bathroom accidents occurring in my elementary school. May God continue to bless you and this wonderful organization. Thanks a million times over!

COK - I can't thank you enough for making my job easier and proving for the needs of my students. Anytime a student has a clothing, coat, shoe, sock, etc. need you are there to provide. The next day students are coming in with bright smiles, new warm clothing, and feeling good about themselves. Thank you for caring out the children of Sussex County and being a GREAT/Amazing resource to schools! Truly a bright light in the community.

Thank you so much for the clothing for the children in need. They were so excited. The oldest child would not let me leave until everything was tried on. The expression on their faces was priceless. God Bless you all and thanks again!!

Mary, You told me to not thank you but to thank your volunteers. Well, thank you is just NOT enough for what your special volunteers did for my family of 2 girls. Your volunteers used their vacation time to touch the heart of a Mom that was hurt a long time ago. By doing so, they also let 2 young girls know that they are important in this world. I, too, was overwhelmed to learn that your volunteers took care of my request during their holiday weekend. My girls were so excited to reach in that box and pull out their new clothes. And they commented on how the styles were some that they really wanted. Mom, in her emotionally dampened manner, said “Wow, I never would have guessed that someone would do this. Thanks for helping me help my girls.” Mom also said “I guess I better learn how to ask and say when we need help.” So please share with your volunteers that they truly made a difference with this family and with me, because I actually get to see the joy and pleasure and surprise. Volunteers, please know that what you do is impacting the lives in Sussex County!! (update ) Mom did say it all fit. I spoke with her again. They moved in to their very own temporary home! It’s just her and her girls and they have 3 months to find something more permanent. Mom seems so much more relaxed than I’ve ever seen her. It’s like your volunteers started a positive chain of events for this family. Please pass this on as well!!

Mary, You have been a true blessing to myself and my children. You have gone above and beyond with helping me be able to have clothing, shoes, and coats for my children. Quick summary of background. Single mom with 4 children, diagnosed with ovarian cancer 6/14, surgery 7/14, going to court to get arrears of support, hit rock bottom financially with school starting, Mary became a blessing. Knowing that you have been here for me has helped in my recovery, so I can get back to being healthy again. This year when I was worried about what to do for my youngest for a Halloween costume, you were there for us. I wish there was a way to show my appreciation for how wonderful you are. I could never thank you enough for what you have done! Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for having such an amazing program!!!
