Agents from RE/MAX Innovations recently organized a clothing drive to benefit the Clay County Clothes Closet, a non-profit organization that has been serving the clothing needs of impoverished residents of Clay County, Mo. since 1959.
Angela Stephenson, managing broker for RE/MAX Innovations, assisted in the drop off of the office’s donation, which filled the bed of a truck. During the drop off, Deborah Butler, executive director of the Clay County Clothes Closet gave Stephenson a tour and shared more about the organization.
“It was touching and made us proud to be donating to such an incredible organization,” Stephenson said. “They serve over 2,800 individuals a year on a very modest budget in Clay County. They do it such a way that it offers dignity and respect to those who are in need, mostly children. The atmosphere was clean, welcoming and not unlike that of a retail store with fitting rooms and mirrors.”
The Clay County Clothes Closet is a 100% volunteer operated organization dedicated to assisting in restoring dignity, self-respect and hope to those families residing in Clay County where circumstances have denied them basic human needs, such as adequate clothing, through non-judgmental service by dedicated and committed volunteers.
The organization focuses on the goals of:
- Building a stronger community by strengthening families in need.
- Providing clothing to impoverished children; empowering them to remain in school, obtain their education, and succeed in life.
- Providing clothing to help disadvantaged adults seek and maintain employment.
Information on how to donate or volunteer can be found on the Clay County Clothes Closet website.
