Children’s Clothing Closet

Launched in 2016, the JFS Children’s Clothing Closet provides a seasonal response to the clothing needs of the elementary school age children in the Metrowest community, with a specific focus on the most economically challenged schools in Framingham.

The three-pronged operational model includes seasonal Ready to Wear packages, pop-up shopping events, and individual/family emergency distributions. Current partners include the Woodrow Wilson and Brophy Elementary Schools and Framingham Adult ESL Plus.

Program News

Thank You to the Metrowest Women’s Fund for Your Continued Support of JFS’s Children’s Clothing Closet!

Thank you to our collaborative partners at the Metrowest Women’s Fund for hosting a girl’s clothing drive to support the JFS Children’s Clothing Closet and our client’s families! Their efforts resulted in the collection of over 650 new and gently-used girl’s clothing items. With their support and donations from community members, JFS continues to fill Ready to Wear orders for our client’s children. The Ready to Wear program works with families in the community to provide clothing items catered to their children’s sizes and needs. Thanks to the Metrowest Women’s Fund’s clothing drive, these clothing orders continue to be filled and distributed to our client’s families throughout these challenging times!
