As the cooler weather approaches our care packs include track pants, long sleeve tops, hoodies and cozy blankets or dressing gowns. We are putting more packs together than ever before and our winter stock is very low. 

We want to make sure every child referred to us gets the warm clothes they deserve.

Each month we are putting together on average 100 packs - over the 5 months of cooler weather that’s 500 packs! Each pack has (among other things) at least 2 pairs of pants, 2 long sleeve tops, 2 hoodies, 4 pairs of socks and either a blanket or dressing gown.

That means over the next 5 months we need THOUSANDS of winter items!

1000 pairs of track pants
1000 hoodies
1000 long sleeve tops
2000 pairs of socks
500 dressing gowns/blankets
