Gotcha Covered is a one week event that occurs each August-just in time for school shopping! We sell brand new clothing at 75% off retail prices to low-income parents. The money generated from the store then provides scholarship funds for those who cannot afford the fee for our financial classes-this creates an opportunity for Gotcha Covered families to pay it forward-always a good thing!
Think back to when you were a kid on the first day of school. Were you nervous? Excited? Were you outfitted with proper fitting clothes? Did you have the necessary school supplies? We truly hope you did. Every kid deserves this. Sadly, this isn’t the reality for some kids. Despite working hard, their parents still come up short when it’s back to school shopping time. The good news is…as a caring community, we can help!
For those who have participated in our financial programs in the past we offer Gotcha Covered!
The Whatcom Dream’s Gotcha Covered program helps low/moderate income parents provide new clothing and supplies for their children at prices they can afford (75% off retail)!
We ask generous community members to become a “Super Sponsor” by donating $100.00 to make this happen for one low-income child in our community. If you would like to learn more about or register for this wonderful program please call The Whatcom Dream at (360)319-3759.
You can also go directly to our website and hit the “donate now” button-easy peasy! And what a difference you can make for a low-income child as they start off the school year feeling prepared and a little more confident!
