“We're going to find you a couple of shirts and a couple of pair of pants," Geary said. "We're going to stick to these three piles right here."
The shoppers start with basics from jeans to jackets.
Geary shopped for little Dakota and found that it’s not a one size fits all approach.
"It's just a very important program and I love watching the kids," Operation School Bell Co-Chair Margie Thomas said.
What's unique about this program is that all the clothes are new and in style.
"The kids really appreciate the fact that they get to choose things themselves and they get to choose things that they like,” Geary said.
Ann Whitaker with the Assistance League of Kansas City also loves making a difference.
"We find that the clothing we are providing is making a difference in the children's lives mainly with student confidence and acceptance into peer groups and behavior at school," Whittaker said.
Before leaving, Dakota made sure Janet left with something new, too—a thank you note.
"I read them and I tear up because they are they're fantastic and the kids are very, very thankful,” Thomas said.
