Clothing Drive to Benefit Local Families Raising Children with Special Needs
Utah Easy to Love is hosting a clothing drive October 13 - November 5. We are collecting new and gently used men's, women's and children's winter clothing, coats hats and gloves. We are also accepting cash donations to purchase things like socks and underwear. As special needs families we spend thousands of dollars of therapies, medical bills, special needs tools etc. and for many of us there is just not much left over for other basic needs like clothing. Utah Easy to Love wants to help families who are tight to have one less thing to worry about this holiday season.
We will be hosting an open house November 8th for families to come and get the items they need. If you or a family you know (they must be special needs) need a little extra help please contact us for more specific information.
Please contact Lindsay Bartholomew, E2L Program Director with any questions. We are happy to pick up donations outside the Davis County area, or donations made by local groups or businesses.
Donations can be dropped off at KONA Karate Mondays - Thursdays
Centerville - 136 West Parish Lane between 4-830pm
Kaysville - 340 North Main St. between 4-730pm
Cash donations can be mailed to Utah easy to Love or done on our website under the 'Donate' button, please specify 'clothing drive' in the notes/comments box.
All donations are tax deductible and 100% of donations will benefit local special needs families.
A big Thank You to our Sponsors -
KONA Karate (& to their students for helping us spread the word and gather donations!)
