Lakewood, Colo. – November 30, 2015. Christy Sports is excited to collaborate with Clothes To Kids of Denver this winter to provide children with the accessories they need to keep warm all winter long.
The new Christy Sports Southwest store, located at 8601 West Cross Drive in Littleton, will be offering their customers the opportunity to donate gloves, hats, socks and other winter accessories to children across the Denver metro area, to keep them warm and comfortable during the winter season. Customers will be able to purchase these accessories until early 2016. The accessories will be conveniently placed on a Christmas tree located at the front of the store ensuring quick and easy purchasing for anyone wishing to donate. In addition to donating new items, customers are encouraged to bring in any gently used winter coats and footwear.
“Accessories, like hats and gloves, are often the items that children are lacking most during the winter.” said Jenna Kardoes, Manager of the Christy Sports Southwest Store. “No kid in Denver should go without proper winter gear, and we are proud to provide our customers with a convenient way to help children in need in our local community during the holiday season.”
