Our Main Purpose
The Foundation was created to generate the ongoing funding necessary to continue the semi annual clothe a child event that has been taking place since 1986.
Clothe A Child (CAC) Event:
For the last 30+ years we have been clothing needy children within central Indiana. We sponsor & coordinate two events each year, one in August for Back to School and again in December for Christmas. Check out the video above for more on this event.

“I have been involved with Clothe A Child for close to 30 years! This event assists many families in Central Indiana, who appreciate the opportunity to select clothing and accessories otherwise unaffordable to them. A smile on children’s and parents faces is priceless!!”
“It has been my extreme pleasure to have participated as a volunteer in the Clothe-A-Child Event for the past ten years. This event is very well organized and has provided an enriching opportunity for children from various schools and agencies who are in need of essential clothing items. Mike Poynter, organizer for Clothe-A-Child has worked closely within the community to obtain names of children who could benefit from this experience. Mr. Poynter has arranged to partner with local department stores, usually, J.C. Penney, to allow this shopping opportunity, which has occurred once or twice a year on a Saturday morning prior to Back to School and Christmas. There have been approximately 50 children involved for the past few years. It is quite an event that has included Rudolph and Santa Claus who have given presents to each child at the Holiday Clothe–A-Child Event. These presents have been donated out of the goodness of their hearts by staff members at J.C. Penney’s. Staff members have donated backpacks and school supplies at the Back-to-School Event.
This event has allowed children and their families to have a fun, life-changing event while shopping for new clothing, coats, shoes, and various other clothing items. It has warmed my heart to see the faces of the children while they are shopping and when they receive their special gift at the end!
The volunteers leave with a special feeling of knowing they have been involved in something very special and know that their assistance has greatly helped a needy child.
I cherish my involvement in this event and am looking forward to participating in it for many more years”
“I have been participating in the Clothe A Child event for several years and it is one of my favorite events of the year. The smile on the faces of the children is so heartwarming and for most of these children, this is the only Christmas they will get. It is very nice to know that all of the money that I have contributed goes directly to the children and I love the fact that I can even participate and help volunteer and be a part of the magic of giving of my time, talent and treasure. What an amazing gift this is to the children and the community. Thank you Castleton Sertoma and thank you We Can Help, Inc. for all that you do.”
