What's in a wardrobe?
It is our goal at Clothes To Kids to provide each shopper with a week’s worth of school clothing. The selections at our stores are a combination of new and quality used clothing in the latest styles for kids. We have clothing to fit little girls, boys, young men, and young women of all shapes and sizes!
EACH WARDROBE INCLUDEs:
- 5 pairs of new underwear
- 5 pairs of new socks
- 5 tops (including uniforms)
- 4 bottoms (including uniforms)
- 1 dress (optional)
- 1 pair of shoes
- 1 jacket (in season)
What to expect at our stores?
Clothing may be returned to a Clothes To Kids store within 14 days. Please leave all the tags on the clothing. An appointment to exchange clothing is not necessary.
Families must call 727-441-5050 for an appointment and bring their referral and a photo ID with them to shop. No other paperwork is necessary.
Parents are not required to bring their children to obtain clothing; however, fitting rooms are available for their use.
Clothes To Kids is a year-round program. Eligible children may shop twice in a 12-month period but must have a referral with each visit.
We strive to serve as many children as possible each morning that we are open. We ask that you try to complete your shopping quickly so that other families can also shop. Our last appointment is at 11:30 and the store closes promptly at 12:30 each day. At 1:00 p.m. a team of volunteers restocks the store for the next day.
Please keep your children with you at all times while shopping.
