Sara Davis- East Millsboro Elementary, December 2015
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 O'Neill DSCYF Seaford Central Elementary, November 2015
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!!!

JA Paulson, December 2013
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.
Mary Rio - Founder, December 2013
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.
Virginia Johnson - DSCYS, November 2013
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”.
