Join us at our signature fundraising event, Little Trendsetters: Spring Kid's Fashion Show! This promises to be an exciting afternoon. Walk the red carpet, enjoy light hors o'doeuvres, bid on silent auction items and cheer on kids modeling fashionable spring looks while supporting the great work of Boxes of Basics.
Boxes of Basics is an up and coming nonprofit organization in Northern Virginia. We work to collect quality gently used clothing from the community. Volunteers spend hours sorting and hand selecting outfits. Each outfit is carefully wrapped, labeled and packed in a box. Each Box of Basics contains and entire seasonal wardrobe including 5 school outfits, 3 play outfits, 3 pajamas, 1 “Sunday Best” outfit, a winter coat, new socks, new underwear, shoes and an age appropriate book. Everything a child needs for the season is lovingly wrapped and packed in their Boxes of Basics and distributed through school social workers and other organizations to local children in need. When a child receives their Box of Basics, we want them to feel like they are opening a gift. Since the launch of Boxes of Basics in September 2018 we have given the gift of a seasonal wardrobe to over 350 local children in need!
