DENVER, Colo., May 16, 2018 – Mount Saint Vincent, a leading provider of clinical treatment for children aged five to 12 with severe emotional and behavioral challenges due to trauma, mental illness, abuse, or neglect, announced it will host a summer clothing and supply drive to benefit the children receiving services from the non-profit agency. The drive will be held Saturday, June 9, 2018, from 9:00 to 2:00 p.m. at Mount Saint Vincent, located at 4159 Lowell Boulevard in Denver.
Items needed include new, unused children’s clothing in sizes 5 to 16, including summer tops, shorts, swimming suits, pajamas, underwear, and shoes. Personal care items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, and conditioner are also needed.
“Our supply of donated clothing is running extremely low this year,” said Mount Saint Vincent Director of Development Cindy Liverance. “As parents purchase summer clothes for their children, we are hoping they will pick up an extra outfit for one of our kiddos and drop it off on June 9th.”
Mount Saint Vincent serves approximately 100 children every day through its many programs, which include residential treatment, foster care, day treatment, in-home therapy, and a K–8 school. People unable to participate in the June 9 drive are welcome to drop off clothing or personal care item during regular office hours, which are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays.
