WEB EXCLUSIVE Wake County charity organization Note in the Pocket celebrates its move to a new (and more expansive) address.
Note in the Pocket, a Wake County-based nonprofit with a mission of providing quality clothing to homeless and impoverished kids and their families, kicked off the new year with its move to Crossroad Fellowship’s Millbrook Road Campus. This facility will provide extra space to store clothing donations and host more volunteers and community partnership gatherings. With 29,000 square feet in the new space—a capacity increase of 262%—the nonprofit looks forward to serving more children and families.
“Since 2013, Note in the Pocket has worked with more than 12,000 volunteers to provide over 35,000 children and families with clothing valued at more than $5 million in donated clothing,” says Executive Director Dallas Bonavita. “We look forward to continuing and expanding this important work through our beautiful new facility.”
Note in the Pocket held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and facility tour on Jan. 13 to celebrate the opening of the space. “This expansion will allow it [NITP] to continue its transformative work for decades to come,“ says Smedes York, chairman of York Properties. ”The children in school today are our community’s future leaders, and the dignity that comes with a new wardrobe will have an immeasurable positive impact on their future.”
