We need your help to provide underwear and socks to children in need. I want to share a story with you that stays vivid in my mind.
A little girl named Lilly came in with her mom to Angels of God. She informed me she was a whole handful (five years old) 🙂 She skipped around with her mom picking out a few new outfits off the clothing racks. I could hear her squeal from time to time. But at one point the squeal turned into a shriek! I got up from my chair behind the counter to see what was wrong… Was there a spider? Nope! … Lilly found a new pack of princess underwear!! She was so happy.
It reminded me of my girls when they were little. Part of our back to school shopping trip would always include finding those perfectly themed underwear. From Care Bears to Sesame Street to Barbies. And then of course, I can’t forget searching unsuccessfully for Thomas the Train little girl undies. Solution; iron Thomas the Train decals onto plain white underwear to make my #1 Thomas the Train fan prance in style!
It is hard to imagine, but many children go without underwear and socks because their parents have to choose between new undergarments or paying the utility bills and putting food on the table. Something as simple as new underwear and socks can make a difference in a child’s/teen’s dignity. Changing in the locker room for a tween or teen can be very embarrassing if they are wearing underwear/bras that are old, too small or big.
The fact is…. ONE person can make a difference and that can be you! HOW CAN YOU HELP?
