With the help of our generous donors, a number of helpful merchants and civic organizations, as well as a grant from the City of Edmond, we offer each child positive opportunities to make choices, to interact with attentive adults, and to have some fun as they select their new clothing, shoes, and coats. We faithfully serve between 500 and 700 children during each distribution.
We are a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization under applicable IRS rules, so gifts to U R Special are tax-deductible as charitable donations.
Although our buyers make great efforts to obtain merchandise at reduced prices, it still costs approximately $50 to clothe each child at each distribution. This would not be possible without the generous gifts from people like you.
