Compassion Closet Online Request Form
Pass Along Project Request Form
The Pass Along Project is a cooperative effort between local community volunteers to collect and redistribute gently used clothing as age and gender specific "bundles". Each bundle consists of enough clothing for a full week as a basic startup – similar to what most families purchase at the beginning of a school year.
Foster parents or their State Resource Worker simply need to fill out the form below hit submit and we will coordinate your delivery.
We all may not be in a position to adopt or foster

The Pass Along Project
The Pass Along Project is a cooperative effort between local community volunteers to collect and redistribute gently used clothing as age and gender specific "bundles". Each bundle consists of enough clothing for a full week as a basic startup – similar to what most families purchase at the beginning of a school year. In short, The Pass Along Project is a new distribution method, conducive to the needs of Foster Parents.

"It has been a pleasure working with Marie. I had a family that needed a bed for the mom and child. Mom had a muscle issue and was sleeping on the floor she had given the blow up mattress to her son she did not even have bedding. If it was not for the care of the ministry she would still have nothing. The ministry provided mom a bed the kid a bed and bedding. The mom was so happy she cried. At Christmas the ministry provided gifts for kids and teens. If it was not for the gifts especially for the teens they would not have had any gifts at all."
