Blessings Boutique: Free Clothes for Kids in Homewood
The Salvation Army branch in Homewood-Brushton has recently launched the Blessings Boutique, which is available to children ages 5 to 18 and offering free jackets, pants, shirts, toiletries and other items. The organizers at the Salvation Army told KDKA that “clothing is important to a child’s self-confidence, especially at school.”
“Self-esteem is really important in our community, especially in children. Providing them new clothes instead of hand-me-downs or items from the thrift store. That’s what this boutique is to help the children in this community,” Erin Perry of the Salvation Army told KDKA.
