I want to thank you for believing in me and Angels of God’s mission at such a young age. I had a vision at 12 years old to provide clothing and more to those in need, and because of your support over the last 7 years, Angels of God Community Outreach has grown tremendously and has touched the lives of many.
Please take a moment to browse our website www.AngelsofGod.org and our Facebook Page www.Facebook.com/AngelsofGodClothing and see how Angels of God has made a difference to those in need.
Purchasing the building will open more doors for Angels of God. We have worked the last seven years and done amazing things out of the small space we have, but feel limited to what we can do. We find ourselves very crowded and on top of one another trying to work. The extra space would allow us to have more volunteers at one time and store large corporate clothing donations. Rather than rent storage units and drive back-and-forth to the units daily, we will be able to utilize the new space. Not only will that save time, but it will also save money.
The new space will also allow us to expand our current programs and implement a few new outreach ideas.
MY STORY: My name is Katelyn Darrow, and I am the founder of a non-profit organization, Angels of God Clothing Closet, located in Pitman, New Jersey. My mission is to give a HAND UP to those in need by providing clothing, food, toiletries and more. The clothing closet is set up in a storefront in Pitman, where referred clients can shop at no cost. I started my mission July 2009 at just 12-years-old. Angels of God works together with local churches, agencies, and shelters, for referrals of people we can help together.
Survivor of domestic violence and raised by a single mother, I have been able to turn my tragedies into a positive. A moment that defined me was when my mom, sisters and I had to pick up in the middle of the night and escape our abuser. We left wearing only the clothing on our back, abandoning many of our favorite possessions behind. A few years later we were faced with another obstacle – a house fire. Going from place to place without an official location to call home, not knowing where we were going to live the next day, was difficult.
Looking back, what impacted me the most was how people helped us. So many people in the community reached out to my family during our hardships. I’ll never forget the compassion and kindness that was shown. Now, giving back is my way of paying it forward. In 2009 at 12-years-old I started a 501c3 non-profit organization called, Angels of God Clothing Closet. My charity provides clothing and more for free to families in need. It’s heartwarming to help residents at the same domestic violence shelter that once assisted my family. We work with social services, homeless shelters and community leaders who refer clients to Angels of God. The clients are invited to come into the clothing closet storefront and go “shopping” at no cost. The center even has shopping carts and a dressing room! I know from personal experience that it can be difficult to keep your dignity in tough times. Sometimes, something as simple as a new outfit can put a smile on one’s face and make them feel beautiful.
