Coat Drive for Note in the Pocket | Raleigh Christmas Mini Sessions

Coat drive at the studio because – baby it’s cold outside (so the photo sessions are moving inside)!

Have an outgrown coat stuffed in a closet? Holiday mini sessions are coming up and while the Pajama minis are completely booked we still have remaining openings for our holiday studio sessions left (details below, click here for current availability!) These mini sessions include simple, neutral sets that are lightly holiday themed (samples are from last year, this year’s will be similar but updated). Feel free to bring along any Christmas items that are special to you, sessions are kid focused but parents are always welcome to jump in a few shots.

This year we are thrilled to be collecting winter items for Note in the Pocket during all of our studio sessions so clients, please bring any gently used coats or other cold weather items and we will deliver them to this fantastic organization that provides clothing to impoverished and homeless children and their families throughout Wake County.

If you haven’t heard of this group it’s pretty amazing – not only do they collect clothing for kids of all ages (including teens, so adult sized coats are welcome!) but volunteers sort the items by size, put matching items together and deliver clothing packages containing two weeks of outfits to these children in need. How amazing is that! All items are welcome but their immediate needs are Boys Coats sizes 14 – 18, Men’s Coats size small (for teenagers), Boys long sleeve graphic t shirts sizes 8-14, Girls long sleeve graphic t shirts sizes 12 and 16.

Note in the Pocket believes it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school and the need is even more real during the cold weather months. Read more about them here:

If you are not coming in for studio photo session this year but would still like to donate a coat you can definitely do so!
