Teen Closet Spokane
I had me a little chat with Robyn Nance from KXLY this morning. It was brief but the gist of the conversation was that there is a tremendous need for awareness for this wonderful organization called Teen Closet.
It was started in Spokane a little over four years ago and there still is a lot of need for 1. Clothes and 2. Awareness. So of course I stepped in to help with what I can do best. I am here to give you the skinny on what they are all about. I am just going to post an copy of their “About Us” page on their website to keep this short enough to read in a few minutes. Please go to their website to find out the whole scoop on this fantastic group of folks that donate so much of their time for a great cause.
Here is the page from their website….
Linda Rogers, Foster Parent Association President and KXLY4’s Robyn Nance saw the television story about Taylor’s Closet, and while meeting over coffee about other foster care topics, started talking about Spokane’s need for its own “Closet”. From that conversation over coffee the ball started rolling, and it hasn’t stopped. Some fantastic, energetic and caring people agreed to join our board.
When children come into foster care, they are taken away from their homes, their families, the only life they know. Many times this happens with no notice. They may be allowed only the clothes or PJ’s their wearing at the time.. sometimes not even that.
Teen Closet is here to help teenaged boys and girls by providing them with some great clothes and products. We want to give them something to be happy about and make life a little easier for them.

On any given day there are 11,000 children in Washington State who are not able to live with their parents due to child abuse and neglect.
When a child goes into foster care they usually have to change schools.
Children in the foster care system are given a one-time clothing voucher for $100.
