Shoes and Clothes for Kids’ mission is to improve K-8 school attendance by eliminating lack of appropriate clothing, shoes and school supplies as barriers.
Shoes and Clothes for Kids (SC4K) is the only non-profit organization in Greater Cleveland providing new shoes, school uniforms, clothes and school supplies throughout the year at no charge to thousands of children in need. Through our programs, including Uniforms for Kids and the Cleveland Kids in Need Resource Center, we help improve school attendance, in some cases up to 24%, so that our community's children have the education they need to succeed.
Our great impact reflects the efforts of hundreds of committed volunteers who help us organize our inventory as it comes in, and then get it out to the community. We thank you for your interest in lending your support! We operate out of two warehouses on Cleveland's east side: our Clothing Warehouse at 4966 Woodland Avenue and our Cleveland Kids in Need Resource Center at 3631 Perkins Avenue.
