Our Mission

The mission of Charity Newsies is that no child shall be kept out of school for lack of adequate clothing.

Our Impact

Charity Newsies provides children enrolled in school from Kindergarten through 12th grade in Franklin County with brand new clothing. We serve children by providing them with socks, underwear, pants, shirts, a coat, hat and gloves. Children attending schools with dress code requirements receive compliant clothing. For children who attend schools with uniform requirements, we provide a uniform voucher. Charity Newsies has providing clothing to almost 800,000 Franklin County children since we were founded in 1907.
