CTKD Temporarily Closed

Featured

Dear Clothes To Kids of Denver Supporter,

Like many of you, we at Clothes To Kids are concerned about the growing number of cases of Coronavirus/COVID-19 in the state of Colorado. In order to help slow the spread of the virus in our community and limit the risk of the virus affecting our shoppers, volunteers and staff, we have decided to temporarily suspend operations starting on March 14, 2020.

While we are closed, we will be unable to accept clothing and shoe donations. We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time. We will keep you informed about our reopening date. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. We appreciate your continued support.

Warm Regards,
Valerie Lunka, Executive Director
