Sponsor the Blue Jean Bash

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 22, 2018, at CU South Denver (formerly, the Wildlife Experience).

For more information, please 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 val@clothestokidsdenver.org. Thank you for helping us clothe children and change their lives for the better!

 

We are hiring!

Clothes To Kids of Denver will give away 6,000+ wardrobes between now and December. Read below to learn how you can join our fun, dynamic team!
