We provide clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County. Note In The Pocket believes that it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Through our partnerships with schools, agencies, individuals, businesses and foundations, we clothe children with dignity and love.
What We Do
We provide needed clothing to children who are identified by various schools and social service agencies in the community as impoverished or homeless and needing clothing to wear to school. We accept donations and supply all seasons of clothing year round. We process incoming donations and outgoing orders at our Volunteer Center located at 240 Newton Road, Suite 101, Raleigh NC 27615.
Note in the Pocket grew out of a family ministry started in 2005. One family took it upon themselves to provide clothing for some children in an impoverished school. As word spread, more people became interested in helping and more needs were identified. In the spring of 2012, this family ministry became a church ministry of Our Lady of Lourdes, operating under their nonprofit status.
In March of 2013, Note in the Pocket became a legally formed North Carolina corporation. A board of directors was established and is working toward becoming a viable nonprofit provider of clothing to children in Wake County who need it.
Our future plans include obtaining funding to support our operating, overhead, and future paid staff positions. In order to maintain a steady supply of clothing to the various groups and agencies that need them, we need to have 2-3 staff people to run the organization, manage the volunteers, and fundraise.
