Clothes To Kids of Denver was recently featured in Denver Life Magazine – read the article HERE! Special thanks to Joanne Davidson for this wonderful feature and for her support of the mission of Clothes To Kids!
Governor John W. Hickenlooper and First Lady Robin P. Hickenlooper invite you to the Second Annual Blue Jean Bash!
All proceeds benefit Clothes To Kids of Denver, which provides new and quality used clothing to school-age students from low-income or in-crisis families in the Denver Metro Area, completely free of charge.
For children and teens, clothing is more than a basic need – it’s key to their success in school. When students have quality clothing that helps them feel confident, they are more likely to attend school with the self-esteem needed to succeed academically. That’s why Clothes To Kids of Denver provides new and quality used clothing free of charge to Denver Metro students who are from low-income or in-crisis families.
We invite you to help us make a difference in our shopper’s lives by sponsoring our Blue Jean Bash, scheduled for Saturday evening, September 10, 2016, at the EXDO Event Center.
For more information, please visit our Ticket Page or download our Sponsorship Information. Giving levels range from $500 to $25,000. We are also seeking items for our auctions. Questions? Please contact Valerie Lunka at email@example.com. Thank you for helping us clothe children and change their lives for the better!
Clothes To Kids will give away 5,000+ wardrobes between June and December. Read below to learn how you can join our fun, dynamic team!

Obtain permission to place the bin at your school. Look for a spot near a main entrance where people can easily leave their donations.
Sign and return the Bin Champion contract (available on the second page in the packet above). As part of the commitment to participate, you must designate a Bin Champion to bring the clothing to the Clothes To Kids shop and act as the main contact for your site.
Once you have submitted your contract, a Clothes To Kids representative will contact you to arrange your delivery. Bins are typically delivered in September/October each year. Please note that there are a very limited number of bins available so we cannot guarantee immediate availability and your school may be placed on a waiting list.
The Clothes To Kids School Bin Program would not be possible without the generous support of the RK Foundation (of Denver-based mechanical contractor RK). RK designed and constructed the bins in their sheet metal fabrication shop and has pledged to construct and deliver 10 bins per year through 2019.
Thank you RK!!
