Thank you Once Upon a Child for your donation


It was one of those days when the demands for infant clothing kept coming in. “Do you have infant clothes?” A common question from young mothers, many of whom are refugees. We also get many requests from grandparents who take on a significant role in raising many of the children we serve. There was no need to look in the clothing bin in Brigit’s Closet at the Mercy Comprehensive Care Center. It was empty.

Associates at Mercy Comprehensive Care Center, a medical center located in the heart of Buffalo, created a clothing closet to respond to the needs of the community. Associates donate gently used clothes to assist patients in need. Unfortunately, the children’s clothing bin is often empty, due to the demands, and today was one of those days, until an unexpected email arrived.

There are times when you are running a clothing closet that are filled with wonderful moments. It’s great to see a teenage girl find the perfect sweater, a boy find a sweatshirt with a logo that he likes or an adult that simply has something new to wear. There is nothing better, though, than seeing the face of a mom as she selects much-needed clothing for her children.

Kathryn Kruger, owner of a gently used clothing shop called Once Upon a Child, from Hamburg, wanted to donate infant clothes to Mercy Comprehensive Care. Her email came at a critical time; the clothing bin would now be filled to capacity with over a dozen full bags of clothes for infants through 3 years of age. Due to Kathryn Kruger’s generous donation, children in need have beautiful, quality clothing. The donation from Kathryn is deeply appreciated by all and we look forward to working with her in the future, as well.

Thank you Once Upon A Child in Hamburg for your generous contribution. Your efforts are truly appreciated.
