Around The Block is our main program that takes place every November. Last year, we clothed over 2,000 children! Volunteers are needed to shop with the children and their families, as well as set up and close the event. This morning is truly an experience never to forget and allows our volunteers to directly interact with the children we serve and impact for the better. Let the children be your inspiration to sign up online and volunteer!

Kids Matter provides each child with a $100 voucher to spend on clothes and shoes. Families are partnered with volunteers (like you) who help them shop and select new clothes at KOHL'S department stores.

Around the Block Southlake: November 6th and 7th

Around the Block Arlington: November 13th and 14th

Around the Block Austin: November 20th and 21st 


We have restructured our Around the Block events in 2021 to follow all COVID Guidelines and social distancing by implementing a 2-day event. This helps us space out families shopping over time slots, and also makes it more manageable for KOHLS department store employees.

We can provide $225 in new clothing and shoes for every $100 raised.
Our goal is to help 2,000 children this November receive warm winter clothing by raising $180,000.
