Meeting the clothing needs of all eligible children, in a friendly, pleasant, and positive atmosphere that nurtures self-esteem, and thus enhances learning.
Arlington Kids’ Kloset occupies four renovated classrooms in the old Arlington High School. Discretion and sensitivity are paramount in our services. By locating our services off-site from our student’s own schools, we preserve privacy and make students more comfortable when using our service.
We strive to create a welcoming environment, and an enjoyable “shopping” experience, just as it would be in their favorite retailer. The only difference is that all items are free of charge.
- Clothing for kids
- Socks & Shoes
- Books & School Supplies
Welcoming to Arlington Kids’ Kloset
Who we serve: Our Local Students in Need.
Our service is available to low income students in the Arlington, Darrington, and Lakewood School Districts, any student in Early Childhood Education Assistance Programs (ECEAP), and any homeless and unaccompanied youth in the areas served by these school districts. In addition to these clients we also serve youth in families with emergency needs due to fire, natural disaster or sudden relocation. We have served those referred to us by the Red Cross and will continue to serve any student with emergency needs.
Without you we couldn’t do what we do!
Who qualifies: Our Local Students in Need.
Children who qualify for government- assisted free or reduced price school meals or who are otherwise income eligible and directly referred, may receive clothing at Kids’ Kloset once during the school year mid-August thru March. We serve children with emergency needs, such as the Oso landslide, fire, family crisis, sudden relocation, etc., may also be referred.
