Clothes 4 Kids

Each year, Skyline Urban Ministry provides two pairs of pants, two shirts, shoes, socks, and underwear to children in need for the upcoming school year. All items are brand new because we believe that every child should feel confident on their first day of school! This program would not be possible without all of the generous donations from churches and businesses throughout the state of Oklahoma. Special thanks to all those that donate their money and time!
