Back-To-School Give Back Event

Angels’ Care Closet Give Back Event Supporting Local Families


Angels’ Care Closet, Inc. hosted a Back-to-School Give Back event at its new location in Briarwood Plaza on August 17, 2019. Families were gifted with back-to-school supplies, age-appropriate toiletries and undergarments, back packs, lunch bags, personalized items, and their selection of donated clothes and shoes.

We would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support! Your donations of school supplies, clothes, shoes, and toiletries were given to families free of charge and were greatly appreciated. A sincere thank you to Champion Motorsports, Webster Bank, Expedited Credentialing Services, and Seekonk Human Services for serving as donation drop off centers for this drive. An additional thank you to Ms. Diane Johnson, of Kay Dee’s Boutique - Seekonk, MA, for her donation of personalized items.

We’d like to thank Seekonk Speedway, FantasyLand, AppleBees, Chick-Fil-A, and private donors who donated items to our raffle fundraisers, and those who donated funds or bought raffle tickets that allowed us to purchase items not donated.

Clothes not selected during the event will be donated to local clients, donated the local schools for children in need, given to children in foster or transitional housing, and will remain on hand at our storefront location at 2 Olney Street, Seekonk, MA. Donations are still being accepted to support these efforts throughout the year.

Monetary donations are also very much needed to support this, and other, initiatives to support our community. They can be mailed to 42 Pershing Ave Seekonk, MA, or via PayPal to angelscarecloset@gmail.com. Our EIN is 82-4625908 and donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

If you have questions or would like to keep up with future events, please email angelscarecloset@gmail.com or find us on Facebook at Angels’ Care Closet
