Charities Guild of Northern Kentucky partners with Burlington Coat Factory
The Charities Guild of Northern Kentucky is proud to announce its new partnership with Burlington Coat Factory.
CGNK is a volunteer based non-profit organization focused on improving the lives of children and families in the Northern Kentucky area. CGNK's primary philanthropy, the Shoe Fund, has provided shoes to underprivileged children for over 25 years. CGNK partners with area schools, churches and social service agencies to identify those in need and then distribute a $30 voucher for a new pair of shoes. Starting today, these vouchers can be redeemed for shoes and socks from Burlington Coat Factory . Burlington Coat Factory provides two convenient locations and a great variety of merchandise appropriate for all ages. Last year, over 600 vouchers were redeemed, providing nearly $18,000 in shoes for kids in need. When children arrive at school with shoes in good condition, school officials report that the children are able to focus more effectively on learning.
