Cape non-profit provides clothing for children in need
The Rotary Clubs of Harwich-Dennis and Yarmouth recently met with the Board of Directors of Katelynn’s Closet to present over $1,000 in donations. The two Rotary Clubs also sponsored a clothing drive in August and September that resulted in over ten bags of “gently used” clothes for the organization. Katelynn’s Closet is just one of many community-based projects supported by the two clubs.
Katelynn’s Closet is a non-profit located in South Yarmouth. The organization provides gently-used and new clothing to school-aged children by partnering with existing social service agencies, including school nurses, teachers and counselors throughout Cape Cod.
When a partner organization identifies a needy child, a call is made to Katelynn’s Closet with the child’s age, gender and size. A package of clothing is put together and the partner picks up the clothes and delivers them directly to the child in need.
Along with a few volunteers, Ann Bearse, Beth Davis and Suzie Roettig, have put together a week’s worth of clothing for over 300 children on the Cape since 2009.
