Clothes To Kids - New St. Petersburg Store

Clothes To Kids Announces New St. Petersburg Store Location

St. Petersburg, Florida Jennifer Silva, Executive Director of Clothes To Kids, announced today that the organization has selected a location for its new St. Petersburg store. Clothes To Kids (CTK), whose mission is to provide new and quality used clothing to low-income, school-age children in Pinellas County free of charge, has been operating for nearly six years out of a single location in Clearwater. The addition of the second store will allow CTK to better fulfill its mission by making its services more accessible to the more than 25,000 eligible children who live south of Ulmerton Road. The new CTK store, slated to open in August of this year, is located in the Cornerstone Center at 3251 Third Avenue North, Suite 145 South, in St. Petersburg.

The CTK staff hopes to open the doors to the new St. Petersburg store in time for back-to-school shopping in August. To be eligible to shop at CTK for free clothing, a child must be enrolled in school in any grade Kindergarten through 12, reside in Pinellas County and in financial need. Those children who receive free or reduced lunch through the Pinellas County School system automatically qualify to shop at CTK. A child may also be referred to CTK by a teacher, guidance counselor, social service agency, place of worship or law enforcement agency (for more information on eligibility and referrals, visit www.ClothesToKids.org).
