K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers clothes and hope
Over 6 pallets of clothes were delivered to JFS Orlando’s George Wolly Center yesterday. Thank you to K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers who donated over 5,000 articles of clothing, sizes from newborn to youth 7. That over 4,900 lbs. of clothes! Not just any clothes. Brand new, wrapped, never been worn clothes with labels of names like OshKosh B’gosh and Carter’s.
JFS Orlando and representatives from local partnering agencies, including Coalition for the Homeless, Seminole County Early Learning Coalition, Parramore Kidz Zone, and the BETA Center were given clothes for their clients – all at no cost. The clothing included shirts, pants, skirts, sleepwear, headbands, jackets and Kids In Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) was founded in 1985 by children’s industry executives, and in 2005 Fashion Delivers was created by adult apparel and home fashions professionals.
On April 7, 2014 the two organizations merged to become K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Inc., allowing them to better serve families in need and supporting our continuing efforts to aid kids and adults. They help fight poverty and tragedies through the gift of new products, including apparel, accessories, shoes, home furnishings, toys, books, school supplies and other items.
Excess merchandise is donated from companies that make or market the goods and are distributed through community nonprofit partners. Since 1985, over $1 billion of donated products have been distributed through this network, serving the poor and disadvantaged worldwide.
Through our partnering agencies, these articles of donated clothing will bring hope and dignity to people in need throughout Central Florida.
