New Clothing for Kids

Statistics show that having the proper clothes promotes educational success through better self-esteem and school attendance.  Through our New Clothing for Kids program, we provide clothing, shoes and personal grooming products to children from families with extreme need.  During the 2017-18 school year, Assistance League of Northern Virginia provided children with 314 items of new clothing, 155 bags of grooming products, and distributed 2,000 coupons for free haircuts and 510 coupons for purchasing new shoes.

As part of the New Clothing for Kids program, we also furnished knitted baby afghans and hats and clothing to the mothers of infants and toddlers at a local health clinic.  These handmade items are beautifully made and donated by the residents of the Dunbarton Oaks community in Bristow, VA, The Virginian community in Falls Church, VA and other individuals.  These wonderful ladies spent thousands of hours making these items during the 2017-2018 year!  Just a note – the average age of the Virginian ladies is 96 . . . and they are still going strong! We tremendously appreciate these ladies for their dedicated support!
