Give Clothes To Kids With Grow Financial

As we approach the new school year, we’re asking you to join us as we support a worthy cause in our community—giving Clothes To Kids—on July 2-27!

The Grow Financial Foundation is thrilled to help Clothes To Kids, Inc. by hosting a clothing drive to collect clothes for children in need. You can join our efforts, too, by cleaning out your closets and donating new or quality used clothing! Donations will be delivered to Clothes To Kids and given, free of charge, to low-income or in-crisis school-age children in Florida’s Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.

Clothes To Kids envisions a community in which every school-age child has quality clothing so that he or she may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success. Since opening its doors in 2003, Clothes To Kids has distributed more than 128,000 wardrobes to local school children. A wardrobe consists of five pairs of new socks, five pairs of underwear, five tops, four bottoms, one pair of shoes, one dress (optional), one jacket (season), and fun accessories, as available.

How can you help? Donate clothes by dropping them off in the bins located at any Grow Financial store location in Florida from July 2 through July 27. Anyone in the community is welcome to participate alongside Grow employees and members! So, check your closets, and spread the word!
