Mission Statement


Clothing kids to live, laugh and learn

Description


Community Kids? Closet is a local non-profit organization formed in December of 1998 by three Northwest Arkansas women. These women felt led to be in service to God, local churches and area school children by utilizing their time and skills to find a way for the giving people of NWA to help clothe these children in need. They believed that new clothing provided directly to the children at school would not only give the children a chance to wear weather-appropriate clothing, but would also boost social and academic esteem. They also believed that people in area churches would appreciate and respond to a program that directly serves children of Northwest Arkansas. So far these beliefs have been confirmed by the overwhelming response of church congregations all over the area and by area teachers telling of the wonderful impact the gifts of new clothes have made in the lives of their students.
