Boys Town Leverages Strategic Partnership to Provide Warm Clothing

Boys Town New York began its partnership with Good360 in 2013 to provide warm clothing to underprivileged children and families in the Brooklyn community. Good360 provides in-kind donations from companies to nonprofit organizations. One of the local Good360 partners is Gap Inc.

Recently, Boys Town received more than 150 boxes of clothing and apparel from ​Gap Inc. Because the Brooklyn event has received such a positive response over the years, Boys Town New York used this additional donation to have a second clothing giveaway to benefit the East Harlem community. As a result, more than 230 local residents received winter clothing and apparel, as well as information on local resources.  

"These types of donations allow our staff to cultivate relationships within the community and strategically target the low income areas with the greatest needs" said James Hill, Boys Town New York Development Director.
