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 collect and distribute clothing for school aged children from kindergarten through high school. We deliver year round so we accept clothing for all seasons throughout the year.

Our Expansion Plan – Service Calendar
Due to our desire to reach a greater number of children, and our access to them through year round schools, we began our Service Calendar. This allows any group to schedule the time of year they would like to host a clothing drive for Note in the Pocket. This planning allows us to have a continuous stream of clothing coming in and going out. It also provides an avenue for others to participate in the process, giving them ownership in the project.
DISTRIBUTION PARTNERS: If you are able to identify children in need we welcome the opportunity to provide clothing for them. A contact person from your school or organization would alert of us specific needs and then deliver the items to your student. Our only contact is with a designated staff member. Contact Dallas Bonavita to set up point of contact information.
SERVICE PROJECT PARTNER: Seasons change and children grow. Our supply of clothing can never meet the needs of everyone If your school or organization would like to participate in either a clothing drive or a fund raiser – the number of children we can help greatly increases.
VOLUNTEER PARTNERS: If are interested in a list of our numerous and flexible volunteer opportunities we would love to hear from you!
