In 2013, over $2.3 million worth of new clothing was distributed to 25,000 children throughout Greater Cleveland.

The Associate Board is a group of dedicated young professional volunteers who generate awareness and funds to support the work of Shoes and Clothes for Kids. By engaging our peers in events and activities that develop a link to Shoes and Clothes for Kids, we’re helping to ensure the viability of the organization now and in the future. One of the benefits of a group like the Associate Board is that it helps develop future philanthropic community leaders as well.

Founded in 2005, the Associate Board accomplishes its work by engaging its members and volunteers on project teams that coordinate volunteer recruitment & retention, fund-raisers and other events and communications activities.

If you are a young professional interested in getting involved with the Associate Board check out our current project teams here.

The Associate Board plans happy hour fundraisers and one larger annual event, the Luau on the Lake held at Whiskey Island.
