Pepsi Refresh Project – Kira’s Kloset

20 Nov

…whatever you did for one the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40


Start a kids’ clothing closet in memory of my daughter- Kira’s Kloset

 

 

  • To collect gently used children’s clothing.
  • To make used children’s clothing available to those in need.

Kira’s Kloset is a memorial to Kira Wraspir to benefit area children.  Kira’s Kloset volunteers will collect new and gently used children’s clothing, wash and sort it, and redistribute the clothing to area children in need.  Kira’s Kloset is planning to work with area schools to promote clothing drives and install collection bins for each school; and connecting with area families in need.  The clothing would be transported to a distribution site on a designated day and organized and displayed on hanging racks. This is an outreach of St. Luke Lutheran Church.

Cash donations can be mailed to:

St. Luke Lutheran Church PO Box 28948 Spokane, WA 99228 Attn: Debbie Wraspir

Make checks payable to: St. Luke Lutheran Church and notate Kira’s Kloset on the memo line.

This promotes the concepts of giving to help others, and that kids can make a difference; concepts that Kira herself embraced.  Kira was a Girl Scout, she volunteered at the local food bank, and donated her hair to Locks of Love twice.

If successful, Kira’s Kloset will be an ongoing project.  At this time support is needed to get started.
