What We're About...

"We're a community helping the community." 


We are open on Wednesday's from 10 AM to 2 PM to receive gently used clothing. If you are in need of a large item between giveaways, contact us at thekidspantryrequests@gmail.com


Jodi Bechtold and Stephanie Johanson are the co-directors of The Kid's Pantry.  They saw families struggling to provide basic needs for their children during these tough economic times and wanted to bless the community by providing slightly gently used clothes, shoes, toys etc. for FREE. 

"Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, "Go in peace; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." James 2:15-17

The Kid's pantry is a unique organization that provides free gently used children's items to families in the Northwest Suburbs without requiring proof of hardship. Our goal is to ease the financial burden on families during these tough economic times. We work with local groups and families who donate the items, and our team processes and disperses the items on a weekly and semi-annual basis.
