LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Instead of keeping clothes that have gone out of season on her shelves at Stephanie's Kloset in Larchmont, Stephanie Kole decided to donate thousands of dollars worth of merchandise to Pass It On Kid's Kloset .
Kole, a Port Chester resident and owner of Stephanie's Kloset at 1967 Palmer Ave., packed up six big boxes and many more bags of clothes this past Sunday, worth $6,823.25 at wholesale price.
"I just decided that someone else could use it more," said Kole, who also received donations from local residents. "We had one grandmother come by with 15 garbage bags of clothing."
Kole also donated clothes to the Boys and Girls Club of New Rochelle following Hurricane Irene. Stephanie's Kloset sells tween, teen and young womens clothing and accessories.
Kid's Kloset, a Westchester Jewish Community Services program based in White Plains, distributes new and gently used children's clothing and essentials to Westchester families in need. Volunteers use service agencies to deliver donated items, including houses of worship, schools, shelters and community groups.
Interested in helping out? Kids Kloset is always looking for volunteers, hangers, shelves, storage bins, shoes and new or gently used clothing. Items needed the most include: unopened diaper packages, wipes, new bottles and sippycups and new underwear for children of all ages.
