Commissioner Collecting Clothes for Children in Need

Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick is organizing a donation drive to collect clothes for children and young adults in need.

“We are a very giving and generous community that always rises to meet the needs of our friends and neighbors, and I know we will do it again here,” Chairman Kirkpatrick said. “Maybe you got some clothes that don’t quite fit for Christmas, or you have a few things you never wear taking up space in the closet. That’s exactly what these children and young adults need.”

Donations of new or gently used clothes will be accepted from Jan. 18 to Feb. 1 at County community centers, the County Government Center in downtown Las Vegas, and County Harbor locations.

The donations will go to children through various groups and centers that often see children in need including SafeNest, The Harbor, the County Department of Family Services and community centers.

If donating gently used clothing, please make sure the clothes are clean, freshly laundered and free of stains. Donated socks and underwear must be new.
