About Us

Our Mission


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!

How It Works
