Did you know that parents will spend an average of $264 on their children's back-to-school clothing and accessories this Fall? But that number is out of reach for many families.
Our mission is to empower kids with seasonal wardrobes packed with love and compassion. We work with school counselors, social workers, faith leaders and human services agencies to provide children with stylish, quality clothing that will give kids confidence and help them thrive!
As the 2022 school year begins, we need your help to clothe 1,000 local kids this school year. You can help a child walk confidently into school this year!
At Boxes of Basics we believe that every child deserves to have their basic clothing needs met.
Our mission is to provide children in need with a seasonal box of quality new and gently used clothing in their size.
Our amazing volunteers hand select and pack every Box of Basics and tailor it for each individual child. When a child receives their Box of Basics we want them to feel like they are opening a gift!
Boxes of Basics collects quality new and gently used clothing donations from community clothing drives.
Our amazing volunteers help sort and pack the Boxes of Basics for children in need.
We work with other local charity, government and religious organizations to identify and serve those in need.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Here are a few ways you can get involved now!
Each Box of Basics contains a season's wardrobe of quality clothing based on the child's age, size and gender.
Boxes are packed with a variety of outfits, pants, shirts, dresses, jackets, shoes, socks pajamas and one “Sunday Best” outfit.
