Spokane Beard & Mustache is all about giving back to the community we call home! Our charity in year one was Vets Garage; year two was the Spokane Guild School, for which we received the Good Neighbor Award; year three was the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, for which we received the outstanding support award; year four was Safety Net. Year five was River’s Wish Animal Sanctuary. Year six was Solution is Hours, year 7 we worked with Teen and Kid Closet and Embrace Washington, and in year 8 we again worked with both Teen and Kid Closet and River’s Wish Animal Sanctuary. In total, we have raised $111,000 for these seven charities.
In 2020 we have selected to work with Teen and Kid Closet! Teen and Kid Closet is all about dignity for an often overlooked population, children in need. The idea is simple. We give new or gently used clothing to children who need it. Our focus is youth in foster care or in poverty.
TKC is a brick and mortar shop in Spokane, serving all of eastern WA and North ID. Every shopper, from babies to young adults are welcome to our free shop. Each child has to be referred by someone of authority: social worker, school counselor, etc.
Most of the youth we serve have no other access to nice clothes. Many times they carry a few possessions around in a trash bag. And sometimes they don’t even have that.
