We match your group or business with a child protective services Caseworker. The Caseworker tells you the needs of the children & families on his/her caseload. You fulfill needs as you are able with used or new items.
We provide brand new clothing, underwear, socks, pajamas, winter coats, and shoe gift cards to children in foster care in the jurisdiction of Greene County, MO.

New children's clothing can be delivered to the Kid's Clothes Closet located inside the Ronald McDonald House of the Ozarks (949 E. Primrose, Springfield, Missouri 65807) or the Council of Churches of the Ozarks (627 N. Glenstone, Springfield, Missouri 65802).
