Clothing Children in Need in Contra Costa County Schools

Our clothing program provides new school clothes for public school children in the Walnut Creek, Mt. Diablo, Martinez and Pittsburg School Districts.

Over 85% of the children receive uniform clothing, while the rest receive everyday wear. Each child from a uniform school receives two pairs of pants, three shirts, one sweatshirt, socks, and underwear. For non-uniform schools our volunteers shop with the children and a parent at a retail location. The items purchased have a retail value of over $80.00 per child.

Common Threads is a program providing clothing for homeless high school students as referred to us by the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.  Last year we provided 215 homeless youth with new clothes valued at $22,000.  In addition, our Clothing Outreach program provided emergency clothing to 89 elementary school children in the Pittsburg Unified School District.
