It’s back-to-school season! His Haven hopes that your children have enjoyed their first few weeks of school. We know how challenging it can be to get used to a new schedule once summer is over. We also know that it’s super easy to forget important items your children might need for school because of the rush to make sure they’re ready for their first day. That’s exactly why we decided to schedule our clothing giveaway event for a few weeks after the school year was underway. 

We hope you’ll join us on Friday, September 23rd from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm for our Back-to-School FREE Kids’ Clothing Drop and Community Dinner! 

His Haven’s Back-to-School Free Kids’ Clothing Drop

We have been so blessed to receive many new and gently used children’s clothing items from individuals, businesses, and organizations in the Elmira community for this event. Here’s just an example of what we will have on hand for your child to choose from:

  • Shirts for all seasons
  • Dresses and skirts
  • Pants for boys and girls
  • Shoes
  • Jackets
  • Hats
  • …much more! 

We have just about every size, too, so we’re confident that you’ll be able to find items that your children will need now or even later on in the school year. 

And if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, no worries!  We’re always getting donations, and we may just get some of the items you were looking for in for our next giveaway.  We’d love to have you come back! 

Pre-Registration for the Free Kid’s Clothing Drop is required, so if you and your family plan to attend, please click here to secure your spot on September 23rd. 

Please Stay for Our Community Dinner!

Once you’ve found everything you need for your kids, we hope your family will stick around or return a little later to have dinner with us!  Dinner is free and is scheduled to start at 5:00 pm and end at 6:00 pm. No pre-registration is required for the dinner. 

There’s truly nothing better than having members of our community get together to eat and enjoy some great conversation. Our community dinners are a great place for parents to meet each other and for the children to make some new friends too! 

Let’s not forget the food!  All our meals are specially prepared, home-cooked meals for our guests!  We’re keeping what’s for dinner a secret for now, but we can promise you – it will be outstanding!
