Angels Care Closet July Update Angels’ Care Closet, Inc Preparing for Busy Back-To-School Season

Posted


We would first like to thank everyone for their support for our very busy June! Thanks to a grant from Bank RI, and our generous local donors, we were able to provide a U-haul of necessities to 50 low-income families in Central Falls. We also prepared and delivered over 100 backpacks with summer fun items and healthy snacks for Seekonk and surrounding town's low-income children. We also prepared many referrals of clothing and necessities for Seekonk and transitional families in need. If you need help with clothing, please reach out to us!

We will spend July getting ready for our biggest event of the year – our annual Back-to-School event. The event will present families with an opportunity to pick out clothes, undergarments, shoes, toiletries, and a full list of school supplies for their students. The event is open to Seekonk residents who qualify for Human Services/Doorways services, free/reduced school lunch and DCF foster/transitional families living in Seekonk. Applications for residents outside of these requirements will be reviewed by the Board for approval. We will post our registration forms in late July.

We are currently accepting children’s size 6-16/18 clothing, and children’s shoes in all sizes. The school supplies most needed are: backpacks, twistable crayons, spiral notebooks, markers, plastic folders, glue sticks, markers, lunch boxes, toiletries and new underwear and socks. If anyone or a local business would like to host a collection box or drive - please let us know via email angelscarecloset@gmail.com,  phone 508-557-0856, or reach out via Facebook.

If you'd like to help support our mission, we are in need of financial donations for our Back-to-School event and operations. We accept donations mailed to 42 Pershing Ave, Seekonk, MA 02771, at the storefront at Briarwood Plaza, 28 Olney St. Unit 28b, Seekonk 6pm-8pm Tuesday and Thursdays, and 10am-2pm Saturday, or via PayPal to angelscarecloset@gmail.com
