The Clothing Center is our chapter's largest service project.
We provide warm, new clothing to school age children upon recommendation of teachers and counselors.
We have provided over 57,000 school children with new clothing including underwear, socks, shirts, pants or skirts, winter coats (upon request), hats, and gloves.
20.65% of Summit County children live in poverty (Ohio Dept. of Health 3/2015) and many of them don't have coats or proper school clothes. CCSA's biggest project is its clothing center, which provides clothing to over 2,000 children each year.
A child receives:
- three school uniforms and a sweater
- toiletries, five pairs of socks, and underwear
- one hat, one pair of gloves, and a warm coat upon request
