Mission Statement

We provide clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County. Note In The Pocket believes that it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Through our partnerships with schools, agencies, individuals, businesses and foundations, we clothe children with dignity and love.

What We Do

We provide needed clothing to children who are identified by various schools and social service agencies in the community as impoverished or homeless and needing clothing to wear to school. We accept donations and supply all seasons of clothing year round. We process incoming donations and outgoing orders at our Volunteer Center located at 5100 Lacy Avenue, Raleigh, NC 27609.


Note in the Pocket grew out of a family ministry started in 2005. One family took it upon themselves to provide clothing for some children in an impoverished school. As word spread, more people became interested in helping and more needs were identified. In the spring of 2012, this family ministry became a church ministry of Our Lady of Lourdes, operating under their nonprofit status.


In March of 2013, Note in the Pocket became a legally formed North Carolina corporation. A board of directors was established and we filed for our own Federal 501(c)3 nonprofit status which was granted in August of 2013.


Our future plans include obtaining funding to support our growth, operating and overhead expenses as well as future paid staff positions. We are working toward building a clothing distribution model that can eventually be replicated in other counties of North Carolina and perhaps one day, nationally.


Please join us on April 28, 2018 at Dorothea Dix Park for our 5th Annual Socks & Undie 5K Rundie.
