Clothe-a-Child of Ohio, Inc. began as a simple team building exercise at Marathon in 1992, where clothes were purchased for children of Open Arms Domestic Violence Center and Hope House during Christmas. This included ~60 children per year and the event remains active today.
Funding comes from individual and corporate donations (80%), plus fundraisers (20%). We attempt to raise roughly $125,000+ per year.
