Real-Life Impact
The impact of the Community Closets on families in need goes beyond just providing them with essential items. It can also have a ripple effect on their overall well-being and quality of life. By reducing financial burdens, promoting dignity and empowerment, and fostering community support, families can thrive and overcome challenges. Just this week, a family of 8 from Mexico arrived and enrolled their children in school. Our Do Good Community Closet supported them with clothing, home goods, and food to help ease their challenges of transitioning to a new country. The children could get extra snacks during the school day when they needed extra nourishment.
