Ways To Volunteer

With a small professional staff, volunteers are critical to the operation of Shoes and Clothes for Kids. Without volunteers, we would be unable to sort, pack and distribute over $4 million worth of brand new shoes, clothes, and school supplies to thousands of children annually.  If you would like to help us help some of the Cleveland area’s neediest school children, please watch the video, register as a volunteer, then sign our Volunteer Waiver Form and chose your dates to come join us!

Email if you have questions and to register groups.

Collection Drives


Socks, underwear, and school supplies are three of the most needed items for children living in poverty. You can help ensure that these basic essentials are something a child always has by holding a sock, underwear and school supply drive for Shoes and Clothes for Kids.

Staff will work with you to identify the best time frame for your drive, help you determine how you will promote the drive, and obtain collection boxes and signage from SC4K for you to display at your collection site. For more information, email

Host a Drive


Volunteer at Our Warehouse


Individuals and groups are needed at our warehouse to help assemble school appropriate clothing packages, stuff backpacks, sort clothes and supplies, and stock shelves. Volunteers must be able to bend, lift, and stand for most of their shift.

The warehouse is open from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm Tuesday through Friday and select Saturdays from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Volunteers need to be scheduled for a minimum 3-hour time slot within these hours.

Email if you have questions or are ready to schedule your volunteer day.
