The mission of Clothes To Kids of Denver is to provide new and quality used clothing to preschool-12th grade students from low-income or in-crisis families in the Denver Metro Area, free of charge. Clothes To Kids is not a consignment store and distributes all of the items that are donated to kids in the community for free.

Who receives the clothing?
The students who shop at Clothes To Kids are experiencing some very difficult circumstances including poverty, homelessness, displacement and home removal. Many are refugees or are in foster care. Most of our shoppers are enrolled in preschool through 12th grade, and we also serve young adults pursuing a GED (up to 21 years old). Please review our Eligibility Guidelines for more information.

Where does your clothing come from?
Most of our clothing is donated from local families who have kids that have outgrown their clothes. Many organizations, churches, schools and corporations help stock our store with clothing drives and through our Apparel Partners that provide new clothing. Please take a look at our Donation Guidelines to help get you started with your own collection!
