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!! Thank you.

After reading the Cape Gazette article I knew I wanted to donate. Is it possible to revise your web site to make the donate button larger and more prominent. Another option would be to include the donate button as a separate tab at the top of the page. Thank you for your help for the kids.

Thank you,JS Paulson, for your very generous donation. I will take care of the Donation Button. PayPal takes out a percentage of the donations, so I wish there was some easy way to let people know that ANYONE can donate money directly into Clothing Our Kids Account at ANY PNC Bank. Just tell them you would like to donate to Clothing Our Kids Fund. Keep your receipt for tax purposes - or email me with your information and I will send you a formal tax receipt.

I wanted to take the time out and thank you for the clothing that **** received last night. His guardian was thrilled and everything fit him perfectly. They both wanted to say thank you so much and “may God continue to bless you”.

The clothing were great. One of the boys came in this morning with all new clothes on and they were so proud. The mom said they couldn’t wait to go to school today because of there new clothes, there old ones were too small, pants on the boys were like capris they were so short. Thank you so much.

Hi Mary! I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving my student at H.O. Brittingham a bag of clothes. He was SO excited when he got them and was smiling all the way to the bus. This morning he was wearing most of the clothing... including the scarf because he was so excited! ha ha! The other kids are complimenting his clothes and he is just beaming! Thank you so much for making his day and mine! You are very special! Nina Esposito Kindergarten Teacher H.O. Brittingham Elementary School nina.esposito@cape.k12.de.us

I don't know what I would do without the assistance that Mary Rio provides to our students. A BIG thank you!

I couldn't be more grateful for everything that Mary and her volunteers do for my kids. Please know what a difference you all make in the daily lives of these children. When I can meet their most basic needs, the teachers can then truly teach! Thank you so much.
