WAYS TO GIVE BACK
The Ken-Ton Closet relies on the support of our community to run our programs. We have no paid personnel, therefore your gifts go directly to the program!
There are many ways to give back to the Closet and we hope you can find the best fit for you. Although the Closet runs one fundraiser early in the year, we accept any donations at any time! Donations are tax deductible (just let us know if you'd like a receipt).
We have been blessed with donations from individuals, groups, and corporations. Some creative options we've seen:
Staff Dress Down Days
IB CAS projects
Employer donation match
Service organization toiletry drives
Lemonade stand (just love our kids!)
You can checkout our latest wishlist summary here.

DIRECT DONATION: PRODUCT
We are excited to be able to provide a bag of toiletries for our patrons at each visit. Although we accept just about any item, the most requested things are:
Soap (bars) or body wash
Shampoo/Conditioner (separate or 2 in 1)
We also welcome travel sizes for our school nurses bags!
We accept new and gently used clothing in all sizes, especially 4T - child extra large. We do ask that socks, underwear and bras are new because we do not distribute these things used. Clothing donations can be left at any of our collection sites, however, if you need a receipt, please drop your donation off at the Closet during normal hours. We take any season. To help us get your donation on the rack quickly for our kiddos, we ask:
Clothing should be clean without holes or stains
Clothing should be modern styled (something kids today would wear)
This year, the Closet expects to provide over 300 Ken-Ton children this year with school supplies! Although you can check out our Wish List for generally needed items, we know the hot deals don't start til July. .
And everything else...
Thank you for thinking of us!
