The following persons can refer a family to Clothes To Kids, Inc.
A social worker or caseworker employed at a local social service agency.
A schoolteacher, administrator, guidance counselor or social worker.

Children’s names, dates of birth, and the school they attend.
A short sentence stating that you know the family and that they are in need of assistance with clothing for their school-aged children.
If you are providing a letter of referral to a family, please note the following:
We ask that you refer only those families who you know first-hand, and who you know to be in financial need of our services.  We also ask that you verify that the children are enrolled in Pinellas County Schools in any grade Kindergarten through 12. (Please notify parent or guardian that they may be asked to provide proof of enrollment upon arrival at CTK).  All referral letters are subject to verification.
Please instruct families to call 727-441-5050 for an appointment and remind them to bring their referral with them to their appointment.  Parents are not required to bring their children to obtain clothing, however they are always welcome as fitting rooms are available.  Clothes To Kids is a year-round program.  Eligible children may shop twice in a 12-month period but must have a recent referral from one of the above sources and an appointment with each visit.
