Free Clothes Available for All Dare County Elementary-Aged Youth

By on January 12, 2021

Do you know a Dare County elementary student in need of winter clothes? If so, please contact Community for Kids OBX, a local non-profit organization that is providing new and gently used winter clothes for ANY Dare County elementary student this year.

Clothes size 4T – 18 are available, as are limited quantities of smaller and larger sizes, to anyone in need. Due to Covid-19 precautions, an appointment is required to select and pick up clothes. Appointments can be made online at or by calling 252-473-5590. Appointment slots are for 45 minutes. During that time you and a Community for Kids volunteer will be the only ones onsite. You will be able to select 6-8 articles of clothing for each child. Appointments are available first-come first-served, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Additional appointments outside of those hours are available upon request. Community for Kids was founded in 2018 by a group of moms from Manteo Elementary School in an effort to provide winter coats to kids in need. Since that initial effort, the program has grown to include offering winter and summer clothes. This year, they are offering these clothes for pick up from their facility in Manteo.

In a space graciously donated by Dare County, Community for Kids OBX is located at 715 Highway 64 in Manteo. They are co-located in the building with the Monarch Beach Club, in the half closest to Manteo Elementary School. For more information or to schedule an appointment please contact or visit
