As the holiday season approaches, it is a time to think of the less fortunate. A stellar charity to give support to this season is Note in the Pocket.

Note in the Pocket donates to Clothed in Confidence, a campaign that helps kids have confidence in the classroom by providing them with nice clothes. 

Their website has their mission statement: “We provide clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County with dignity and love. We believe that it is unacceptable for children to be limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school.” 

As of December 10, 2021, Note in the Pocket has donated 104,909 articles of clothing, helping 5,088 children and adults in 12 cities and towns in Wake County. 

This organization is made possible by the schools or social service agencies that identify a student living in poverty. The official sends requests for sizes, as well as the types of clothing the student needs, along with any needs of the members of the child’s family.

A big innovation that this charity is working on is removing the stigma of childhood poverty and needing help. Note in the Pocket gives each child two weeks worth of clothes as a wardrobe to help empower kids in the classroom.

Note in the Pocket works with the Wake County Public School System as well as twelve other agencies, including The Salvation Army and The Carrying Place. 

Their website states that you can help by donating clothes, money, supplies, and time. Their volunteer center is located at 4730 Hargrove Road, Raleigh NC, 27616. 

Note in the Pocket is a wonderful charity to donate to and spread holiday cheer.
