Caring Partners, Inc. is a 501c(3) organization that develops and implements programs to collect and distribute good quality articles of clothing to children, individuals and families in need. Caring Partners presently sponsors two annual programs, Belle of the Ball in the spring and Coats for Kids in the fall.
Belle of the Ball cleans and distributes prom dresses and provides related accessories at no charge to high school junior and senior girls who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend their school’s prom.
The mission of Coats for Kids is simple, “Anyone who needs a coat will have one.” Each fall, we collect, clean, and distribute over 60,000 coats for children and adults. There are more than 250 schools as well as over 300 companies, clubs, organizations and thousands of individuals who donate good quality coats. Nearly 90 social service agencies make sure the coats get to those in need, free of charge. Since the program’s conception in 1995, we have collected and distributed nearly 900,000 coats.
