Kids don’t usually worry about replacing the clothes they outgrow. But the nearly 20,000 foster kids living in the Northwest aren’t always so fortunate. So Sleep Country USA is collecting new clothes for local foster kids of all ages. But they can’t do it without your help. Bring your gift of new pants, tops, dresses and more to any Sleep Country location. Visit SleepCountryFosterKids.org for more information or to donate online.
