Free clothes available for all Dare County elementary-age youth

A community resource is available for Dare County elementary student in need of winter clothes. Community for Kids OBX, a local non-profit organization, is providing new and gently used winter clothing for any Dare County elementary student this year.

Clothes size 4T though 18 are available, as are limited quantities of smaller and larger sizes, to anyone in need. Due to COVID-19 precautions, an appointment is required to select and pick-up clothes. Appointments can be made online at c4kobx.org or by calling 252-473-5590. Appointment slots are for 45 minutes.

During that time, the participant and a Community for Kids volunteer will be the only ones onsite. Participants will be able to select six to eight articles of clothing for each child. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Additional appointments outside of those hours are available upon request.

Community for Kids was founded in 2018 by a group of moms from Manteo Elementary School in an effort to provide winter coats to kids in need. Since that initial effort, the program has grown to include offering winter and summer clothes. This year, the group is offering these clothes for pick-up from their facility in Manteo.

In a space donated by Dare County, Community for Kids OBX is located at 715 Highway 64 in Manteo. They are co-located in the building with the Monarch Beach Club, in the half closest to Manteo Elementary School. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact admin@c4kobx.org or visit www.c4kobx.org.
