We Exist So That No Child Will Go Without

"It takes a community to save a child." - David Pelzer

About Us

Kids In Distress Services, Inc. (KIDS) is a non-profit organization with tax exempt status whose sole mission is to help children and teens. We provide children and teens with necessary clothing and personal hygiene items when they are unexpectedly removed from their homes (i.e. entering foster care, entering a shelter, left homeless, home fires, as well as any other children/ teen in need.)

How You Can Help

If you want to support KIDS in helping children and youth who are in need of clothing and other necessities, please make a financial contribution to enable Kids In Distress Services to purchase non-recycled items such as sock, under clothing, and shoes. Your tax deductible gift will enable KIDS to continue operating and keep our warehouse stocked.

KIDS will start taking donations again starting Monday, June 15. Due to the Covid pandemic we have had to change our policies and procedures to keep volunteers and customers safe. We will be accepting donations at all of our bins, but for those of you that choose to drop off at the office, it will be a little different. Instead of coming into the building we ask that you kindly drop your donations in our trailer parked outside the back door. If wanting a recipe, simply place your slip with address in the container provided and we will mail you out a donation slip. The trailer will be opened Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM. After those hours please place donations in the bins.

On Wednesday, June 17 we will be opening up the warehouse. With restrictions on how many people can be in the building, safety for our volunteers and customers is paramount, for this reason NO clients will be allowed into the building. KIDS staff and volunteers will be filling all orders until further notice. Please have your workers fax over your referral and call the office at 810-326-4505 to go over your children’s sizes, needs and to set a pick up date and time. We ask that you please be respectful of your pick up time and do your best to make it or call the office prior to your time to change it. We understand that this might not be ideal for everyone but given the situation, this is what needs to be done for everyone’s safety and so we can continue to help the large number of children we service.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
