It's Back to School Time!

The back to school season is quickly approaching and for some it has already arrived and with it comes the back to school shopping for supplies, shoes, and clothing. Have you ever asked “what happens for the children whose parents are just making ends meet?”  How do those parents supply everything on the never-ending supply lists, only to see the list grow one the first day of school?  Where does the money for shoes, supplies, and clothing come from if you are barely making the rent?

Thankfully, Dove Inc. Children’s Clothing Room offers clean gently used clothing to any parent in need. Parents can select up to three outfits per child every thirty days. We try and offer new socks and underwear to all children as well but as summer winds down so does our supply.   

The beginning of every school year can be overwhelming and exciting at the same time, but it is not all about the No. 2 pencils, new shoes, or even new books, it is about the children. So, while you are out shopping for that perfect binder, lunch box, or superhero folder for your own little one become a superhero to another child and purchase some new socks and underwear for Dove Inc. Children’s Clothing Room so we can meet the need, together we can make a child smile even on the first day of school.

The Children’s Clothing Room is located at 2201 E. Prairie St., inside Prairie Ave. Christian Church. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday 1:00pm to 3:30pm.  We serve children from newborn to 17 years of age. All sizes for both genders are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

“have you talked to a trained domestic violence advocate?"

Have you ever had a victim of domestic violence try and open-up to you about their abuse and you not know what to say or how to handle it?...
