Love In the Name of Christ – Love INC of the Black Hills

Clothe-A-Kid Participants

Make your back-to-school dollar ssssttttrrrreeeeeeettttcccchhhh.

Being a parent is tough, and sometimes making ends meet can be a strain. The Greater Rapid City Clothe-A-Kid can help you make your dollar go even further.

For a $10 investment per child you can choose up to $70 in NEW SCHOOL CLOTHES. We will meet you at Kohl’s Department store on a designated day and your child will be able to choose the clothing they love to start school out excited and ready to learn. We do require all clothing meet the dress code for the Rapid City School District. There are limits put on purchase price of one item of clothing. In other words, your child will not be able to spend the whole $70 on one item.


Rapid City Sign up:

  • Bethel Assembly of God (corner of North Maple and Anamosa) DIRECTIONS
  • June 3rd & June 4th 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM
  • June 5th from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM

Who can participate? Anyone struggling financially or who has a situation that’s put you in a place of need.

What to bring:

  1. Birth certificate or other proof of age. Children must be born between August 31, 2005 and September 1, 2014.
  2. $10 cash per child (sorry no checks). For alternate options see below.
  3. Applications will be available at sign up.

When do I pick up the clothes?

Shopping Days: Parents will go shopping with their children and a Love INC volunteer at Kohl’s on Saturday, August 10th or the 17th.

Participants will be helped on a first-come-first-served basis.

What if I can't afford the $10 per child?
