A 14-yr-old’s Clothing Closet for All

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think. — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

~~~~ Good News of the Day: Like many 14-year-olds, Katelyn Eystad has a lot of clothes in her closet — but hers are to give away. In 2009, Katelyn founded a Clothing Closet to provide clothing, diapers, deodorant and more to people in need in her community. With the help of her sisters and mother, she has already served 1,500 families. “What a blessing this child has been to many. Katelyn is always volunteering and giving back to others,” says her proud mom, Elissa. Three days a week, clients can come for shopping sprees by appointment. They shop as usual, they just don’t have to pay anything. Some of them leave grinning, and some of them leave crying in gratitude. “Me and my family have been in need before ourselves,” says Katelyn. “The people who are coming in, I know how they feel and I can relate to them.” http://premiere.whatcounts.com/t?ctl=169D91D:C3009629A010612C9320BDAB0A6E9D68B4B847859706E37D&
