We’re Expanding To Durham!

Exciting Update on our Triangle Expansion!

One year ago, we set a goal to clothe 200 children & families in Durham. We hosted two Pocket Pop Up events and began a pilot program with the Durham Children’s Initiative and ended 2022 by clothing 321!

Now, one year later, we are thrilled to announce the next step in our growth…

It is official! We will open a new program location in Durham this year! We have found the perfect place and the lease is signed!

This expansion will enable us to clothe 500 in Durham this year and set the stage to clothe at least 1500 next year … and that is just the beginning! With the help of the Durham community, these numbers will rise quickly.

We will continue to share details on the location soon. Your investment in Note in the Pocket’s mission helps to make our dreams a reality. And the dreams of children all across our community! Learn more about our new Durham location and be a part of the expansion by following us on Facebook or Instagram, or contact Sarah Caldwell, sarahc@noteinthepocket.org or 703-894-8247.

The Durham Children’s Initiative is excited that Note in the Pocket will open space in Durham. Families who are already experiencing other challenges can take comfort in knowing that there is a partner that reduces the barrier of clothing. Thanks to the support of Note in the Pocket, DCI families are able to feel confident outwardly, and that in turn helps to build up their confidence to advocate for themselves.
