Many of us take it for granted that our children will go to a good school, graduate from college, get good jobs and become successful members of our society. Unfortunately, many children do not even have the very basic necessities to achieve any of this.
"NEAT STUFF, INC." is working to change that. "Neat Stuff" provides free brand new clothing, shoes, accessories, school uniforms, and gifts to meet some of the basic needs of abused, neglected, and other children in distress, allowing them to dress with pride and dignity, inspiring their self worth and hopefully giving them that extra boost to help make their dreams and successes a reality. It all starts at the beginning and where they take it from there... only the sky is the limit. We urge you to open your hearts and give these children a fighting chance. Your tax deductible donation in any amount will go a long way to helping us help them. Please donate now.

said, “This is why we’re here. Clothing can make such a difference in a child’s life.”
