Homeless Families Shop for Free at Spring & Summer Store

June 22, 2017  |  Published in Agency News, Donors

Keeping up with the clothing needs of ever-growing children is a challenge for all parents. But when you’re also experiencing homelessness, this regular task is particularly difficult.

With this fact in mind, Vogel Alcove recently held a one-day Spring & Summer Store for the families we serve. While the children enjoyed a normal day in their classrooms, their parents shopped for a wide selection of kids’ clothes, shoes, toiletries and other essentials—all at no cost to them. Thanks to the generous support of our community donors and corporate partners, more than 150 children and 96 families benefited from the Spring & Summer Store.

In addition to the Spring & Summer Store, Vogel Alcove also offers free stores for Back to School shopping, Fall & Winter items and December holiday gifts. With continued support from our community, we can continue to make these stores bigger and better for our children and their families.
