Note in the Pocket - Clothing for children in need

  • 7 people are interested

Looking to help your community during COVID-19? We need volunteers to make child-sized face masks to accompany the mini clothing wardrobes we give to children in need. Sample instructions/patterns found here: https://seekatesew.com/face-mask-sewing-pattern-for-children-and-adults/

As a non-profit serving the children in Wake County schools, Note in the Pocket started with a simple mission: To Clothe Children in Dignity and Love. We believe that it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Our goal for 2020 was to clothe 5,000 in confidence, but we also want to help keep them healthy! Child-sized, double or triple layered face masks are desperately needed in both boy and girl patterns/colors.

*Once completed, masks should be delivered to us at 5100 Lacy Avenue in Raleigh, or shipped to us at Note in the Pocket, 9650 Strickland Rd, Ste. 103-168, Raleigh, NC 27615.

In 2019, Note received clothing requests for 4,575 individuals, mostly children, throughout all twelve cities and towns in Wake County. NITP has served over 23,800 individuals since receiving our 501C3 status in 2013 . Learn more about Note in the Pocket and the children we serve at https://noteinthepocket.org/.

Mission Statement

Note in the Pocket's Mission Statement: Note in the Pocket provides clothes to homeless and impoverished students in Wake County. We believe it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development due to a lack of appropriate clothes.


Note in the Pocket is a 501c3 organization providing clothing to homeless and impoverished schoolchildren in Wake County. To meet our goal to clothe 5000 in 2020, we are expanding our Volunteer Center hours in an effort to keep pace with our rapidly growing clothing donations (200,000 pounds in 2019) and to allow us to expand the number of individuals and volunteer groups we can accommodate (volunteers logged over 15,000 hours in 2019).
