GET CLOTHES

There are three ways children can receive clothes. All items are free. Children may receive clothes seasonally or as needed.

1) DELIVERY

We aim to provide 5 - 7 outfits/child to the best of our ability but are sometimes limited by our donations. Regretfully, not all types of styles and colors of apparel may be available. Please complete an ONLINE CLOTHING REQUEST FORM so we know how best to serve your child. On the request form, you'll select a delivery option which includes these delivery options.  Clothes will be packed within 3-4 business days from receipt of form. A Luke's Closet volunteer will call or text you with pick-up or delivery details.

2) PERSONAL SHOPPING APPOINTMENTS

Call Luke's Closet -- 608-234-0146 -- to arrange for a personal shopping appointment to select clothes.

3) SHOP & EAT EVENTS

Kiddos can select their own clothes and a free meal is served for families.

ABOUT US

Dane County’s only clothing bank for foster,

adoptive and kinship care children.

Our families often operate on the financial margins. Providing clothes allows them to better focus on loving the kiddos. Kinship is a home where a child is being cared for by a relative (i.e., grandma) and are often not part of the social services network.
