This holiday season Elle Alexander Design helped share the love by donating children’s clothing, wrapped with love, to Note in the Pocket. This heartfelt organization includes a note with every gift they distribute to remind children all over Wake County that they are loved.
The organization started when a first-time teacher asked her mother how she could do more to help her impoverished kindergarten students who lacked adequate clothes to wear. Based on the notion that “We cannot fix everything, but we can do something,” the teacher and her mother purchased coats for each student. The children were so excited! The next day, many coats were returned as the families could not believe someone would give their child a coat. So they put a note in the pocket that said, “This coat is your child’s to keep. It is a gift sent with love from the community.”
Today, Note in the Pocket is a community collecting and distributing well-fitting, weather-appropriate clothes for children in Wake County. A note placed with each bag of clothes simply says: You Are Loved.
