A really beautiful moment happened yesterday though as we were going through the extra kid packs. A teacher saw us going through them and came over to ask if we had any extras for a boy in her class. She said that he had been wearing a weathered woman’s coat and was in great need of clothing. She then brought him over and he was able to pick out a kids pack as well as a one of the remaining coats we had from C2C. When he sat back down with his class he had the widest smile on his face. He put on his coat, hat and gloves and just could not stop smiling. It was really something to see. It was so clear that the clothing was going to make a huge difference in his life. Afterwards the teacher told us that he is embarrassed in class with the clothes he wears and often puts his coat in his backpack so no one sees it. After C2C’s clothing packs and coat he was able to immediately wear his new coat with total pride and openness!
Thanks so much for all you do.
