Charity is a virtue of the heart, & not of the hands

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are not serving a meal until further notice.

Located at the public library in Stevens Point, a colorfully dressed tree stands. Wrapped in scarves, hats, and mittens of all sizes and colors each has a simple note that states, “I am not lost. If you are cold, please take me to keep warm.”

The Kids' Closet is NOW OPEN! Our address is 2151 Stanley St, Stevens Point. Our hours are Monday 9am-11am, and Thursday 2pm-4pm.

One of our co-chairs, Tiffani, is a mother of five children, as well as a foster parent in our local community. During a Place of Peace meal she was noticing children were attending in clothing that was either torn, tattered, or just didn't fit.

Having five kids herself, she could only image what low income and single parent households must deal with when the monkeys grow like palm trees! Inspired she started gathering all of the gently used kids closthes she could find.

First through networking and social media, then eventually setting up shelves in the Evergreen Community Initiatives facility, The Kids Closet has been serving the community since 2014.

Our stock is constantly being rotated and new donations come in weekly. The only way to know what we have is to stop in and see! Tiffani saw the need to open a pantry of clothing for kids of all ages.

The following are rules for The Kids Closet.

  1. One bag per child per month
  2. Stick to your child’s size
  3. Children must be accompanied by an adult

We are very excited to have Frame Memorial Presbyterian Church open their doors to provide shelter for those in need during the cold Wisconsin winter months! If you are wanting to get involved here is how:

We all end up needing assistance at one point or another.

It's true; everyone at some point in their life needs help. There is no denying or avoiding it. It happens. What makes us become the phoenix that rises out of the ashes of despair is the willingness to humbly accept the help, and then in time pay it forward. That is the what the backbone of our programs are about. It would be great if people didn't need help and just got along natrually. It would be great if everyone had a house to turn into a home and endless food on the table. Unfortunately, things don't work that way. Which is why we are here. We are here to help.

However, we also want you to help yourself. So why not sort clothes in The Kids Closet or serve food at the Place of Peace? Without our volunteers and donations this group wouldn't exist. So please, lend a hand, help a fellow human through their trials, and pay it forward (even if you are in the midst of receving it).

1 Peter 4:10 – As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
