Maddie’s Closet to Give Away Clothes to Those in Need


A mother-daughter duo are hitting the road to help clothe the less fortunate.

Kelly Cook and her daughter Madison from Rock Island, Illinois are using a retrofitted school bus they’ve dubbed “Maddie’s Closet.”

Royal Neighbors of America presented $15,000 dollars to help fund Maddie’s Closet.

It all began when seventh grader Madison decided she wanted to give away her clothes to someone in need.

“When I was little i always wanted to help people, so iI went through my closet and I told my mom there’s a big pile of clothes that iI don’t need,” Madison said.

The bus “boutique”

will deliver gently used clothes, accessories and necessities to help empower girls with outfits.

So far, the bus only has girls’ clothing. However, Maddie’s Closet wants to add boy’s clothes too.
