Our Kids Closet in Hartsville opened in February 2009. The Kids Closet in Lamar opened in 2015. The Kids Closets provide children with free clothing. The Hartsville Kids Closet serves children in Hartsville, Darlington, Society Hill and Lamar. The Lamar Kids Closet serves children in Lamar.
At the Hartsville Kids Closet most often the school social workers and family school facilitators come to our location and get clothes for the children in the Darlington County Schools. The clothes are then delivered to the children at their schools or to their homes. The children also receive new underwear and socks, when needed. Children and families can “shop” at the Hartsville Kids Closet when someone at the child’s school requests it is necessary. This is done by obtaining an appointment.
The Hartsville Kids Closet accepts all sizes of gently used and new clothing. The clothing can be left at the Hartsville Kids Closet in the donation bin. The Hartsville Kids Closet is located on the Thornwell School for the Arts campus.
The Lamar Kids Closet serves children in Lamar. All of the Lamar schools can help families obtain the vouchers to ensure they receive the clothes they need.
We are always looking for volunteers to help sort the clothes and fill clothing requests. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
