When I was younger, my family had limited, very humble means. I grew up with “hand-me-down” shoes that were often too small and gently used clothes that fit well enough. While I was at school, my Mom would go to Goodwill and carefully select gently used clothes, then wash, iron then carefully fold them and leave on my bed as a wonderful surprise to see when i got home! I never knew they were second-hand because She always turned these items into elegant treasures which lifted my self-esteem and ensured I had a chance to feel pretty and look my best! Since then, I’ve always wanted to give back to those in need who were just like me. I started 2nd Chance 4 Kids because I want to give kids a 2nd chance to grow, learn, and succeed in their future that awaits them.
