The KIDS concept was created to help children and teens through a difficult transition time in their life. Within the scope of Kids In Distress Service’s mission statement; “we exist so that no child will go without”. The funds collected from Midwest help KIDS to purchase items such as non-recycled under garments, socks and shoes. It brings us joy at Midwest to know that distressed children and teens are being watched over by the caring people of KIDS, that’s why we willingly partner with them.
“Kids In Distress Services, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charity based in Saint Clair, Michigan. The sole purpose of the organization is to provide free clothing to underprivileged and displaced children in the surrounding areas. For each child referred to the agency, a guardian will get five sets of clothes, outer ware, shoes, and other age appropriate items such as hygiene products, diapers, and baby wipes.
In 2014, Kids in Distress Services (KIDS) helped over 16,000 children from the communities they service. Volunteers, with clothing and financial donations from community members and businesses, run KIDS almost entirely.”
