This year we want to give YOU the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of children in our community. Rebecca's Closet is a project of Women United and provides new and gently used clothing for children sizes infant to 14/16. The volunteers who manage the closets are kind, caring, and very mindful of each individual order. The items on this wish list are the very highest needs and will be used immediately to impact a family and improve their stability.
Human Service professionals are able to utilize our services based on their knowledge of the family situation. There is no income restriction or other qualification procedure.
HISTORY OF REBECCA’S CLOSET
Rebecca’s Closet was founded by Kathy Volkmann, Vice President at Cloverbelt Credit Union. Kathy learned that a social worker was looking for clothing for a family she was working with, so Kathy offered some clothing her niece Rebecca had outgrown. When Kathy realized what a huge need there was, she began collecting items at her home. When she outgrew that space, she stored them in a building that Cloverbelt Credit Union owned. After eight years, the program had grown so large that Kathy wasn’t able to continue the operation. In November 2013, United Way Women United took on the project.
