CHILDREN’S RESOURCE ROOM
Our Children’s Resource Room exists to serve our local Lakes area community. Families in need can find seasonally appropriate children’s clothing (currently available in sizes newborn to 8 for boys and girls), pajamas, socks, shoes and basic supplies at no cost to help them work through a temporary hardship or meet the needs of children in their care. Our donors generously stock the resource room with new and like-new items, and our dedicated volunteers sort and organize the donations to make the experience easy and comfortable for the families we serve.
How It Works
Located within Lakes Bible Church, the Children’s Resource Room is open every Tuesday from 11 am to 2 pm. Families can request a gift bag with a selection of seasonally appropriate clothing in specific sizes for boys or girls, or they can connect with a volunteer to source items to meet specific needs. We also work with local teachers, law enforcement/public safety professionals, pediatricians and private citizens who are aware of needs in the local community.
