New DU MSW grad Katie Jones to join Clothes To Kids of Denver

Clothes To Kids of Denver, incorporated in January, 2008 and in the ensuing three years serving the clothing needs of thousands of low-income Denver schoolchildren free of charge, has blossomed into such an essential entity for families that it is taking on its first paid staff member to better focus its growth.

Kaitlin “Katie” Jones, a non-paid intern with CTKD since last September will begin June 7 as the organization’s Program Director. Jones, a native of Denver who will be awarded her MSW from DU on June 3, will spend 20 hours a week at CTKD’s boutique at 2890 S. Colorado Blvd, Unit M-3, serving clients, coordinating volunteers, setting up donations of clothes, arranging referrals from Denver Public Schools authorities and social workers, and working to ensure that the financial support of individuals, corporations and foundations keep pace with the obvious demand for CTKD services.
