Clothing Center

The Lexington Woman’s Club major mission is to provide new and “gently used” clothing to underserved kindergarten students through 5th grade in Fayette County schools.  The Clothing Center, a two story house, serves as the shopping center for the children and houses our inventory.

The project which started in an oversized closet at the Ashland School has grown from a $250 budget providing clothes to 175 school children to a $50,000 budget providing clothes to over 1,400 school children.   Volunteers help the children shop during the months of August through November.
Some annual statistics for recent years follow:

  • Over 1,300 volunteer hours annually at the Clothing Center.  Children came from 41 schools.
  • During a sample year, the club provided: 9,800 pairs of socks; 9,800 underwear; 1,400 sweatshirts; 740 sweatpants; 660 jeans; 1321 coats; 212 uniform pants; and 360 uniform shirts.
The Lexington Woman's Club Clothing Center provides children in our community with clothing.
