At Caleb’s Closet, we love and support those coming into care, as well as those providing foster care, by providing children in foster care with free clothing, toys, personal care products, baby items, and other essential items. Caleb’s Closet is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves as a foster care clothing closet for Lubbock, Texas, and the surrounding communities.
When children enter foster care, they often arrive at their new homes with only the clothing on their backs. We provide these children with a new duffel bag or suitcase filled with clothing, basic essentials and other comfort items, thereby sending these children a message that they are valued and cared for by our community.
Meet Taylor, one of the many children who are the inspiration behind Caleb’s Closet. Taylor came into care at just three years old. Taylor had a trash bag of belongings, consisting of a few outfits sizes 6-7—Taylor wore a size 3. The only clothes he had that fit him were the dirty, tattered shirt and pants he was wearing.
Taylor’s situation represents most children who come into foster care. Many children come from emergency situations and there is no time to pack their belongings.
Every foster family that we have come into contact with have stories similar to Taylor’s. Our mission is to provide these children with clothing, toys, personal care products, and other basic essentials. We do this by accepting donations of new and gently-used clothing and other items from our community.
Your help blesses these amazing children who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in a desperate situation.
