Around the Block SouthlakeName: Around the Block SouthlakeDate: November 2, 2019Time: 7:00 AM - 10:30 AM CDTEvent Description:
The Around-The-Block Program provides desperately needed clothes to school age children who live in poverty in the communities we serve. Children are referred to Kids Matter International by guidance counselors at area schools, domestic violence centers, agencies serving low-income families, orphanages, and churches. There are currently three clothing events held in conjunction with Koh'ls Department Stores during the month of November to insure the children have warm clothes for the upcoming winter months.
Children receive a $100 shopping voucher from Kids Matter. Kohl’s significantly discounts clothing for these events. As a result, each $100 voucher will be valued at $225 in new clothing for these deserving children in need.
Volunteers help families navigate through the store, keep up with how much is spent, help select clothes, and accompany families to Kids Matter tents where they receive a backpack and chose a book. On average, every year there are over 700+ individuals who volunteer at these events.?
