As Sussex County kids head back to school, Clothing Our Kids volunteers announce an online auction to dress them for success.
It’s COK’s inaugural online auction with the goal of helping improve the learning experience of local at-risk children. In Sussex County, over 20 percent of children live below the poverty level. Clothing Our Kids’ goal is to assist these youngsters with an equal start in their early education and help them become successful, well-dressed, confident students.
Generous individuals and companies have donated terrific items to be included in the auction, ranging from one-of-a-kind, exquisite jewelry to a connoisseur’s collection of the finest wines.
More than 75 packages will be available for bidding online starting at noon, Thursday, Sept. 16. The deadline for final bids is noon, Tuesday, Sept. 28, the day after the Clothing Our Kids 2021 golf outing.
With over 20 years of experience in the fundraising software industry providing innovative and secure solutions, FrontStream’s mission is focused on helping nonprofits raise funds to do better.
Clothing Our Kids is a nonprofit organization solely dependent on the time and talents of 150 volunteers. There are no paid staff. Most importantly, over 90 percent of proceeds goes directly to clothing Sussex County schoolchildren in need. Clothing Our Kids’ mission is to offer an opportunity for every child to achieve excellence. To learn more, go to clothingourkids.org.
