ABOUT KELLI’S KLOSET:
The Foundation was begun in memory of Kelli Richmond, aunt of a La Printaniere Elementary student and classmate & neighbor of Ms. Erin and her husband.
During her 2 1/2 year journey with Ovarian Cancer, Kelli noticed that most patients gain and lose weight during treatments, often changing clothes sizes considerably. She was very concerned about those who lack the resources to buy new clothes while undergoing cancer treatment. Kelli’s dream was to create a place where all women with cancer could access clothes that fit for FREE.
Thanks to Kelli and her parents, Kelli’s Kloset has provided free clothing and accessories for women with cancer, their children, and all children battling cancer since June 2014.
