Little Folks Academy needs a little help; Delray Beach pre-school in need of supplies

Kids outgrow clothes faster than parents can buy

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - At only nine-months-old, Ameehsar Hudson is keeping her dad on his toes.

"She is always growing, it's somewhat of an expense," said Hakim Hudson.

Hudson admits, sometimes he has to forego buying her clothes to provide for his family. 

It's a common story for low income families who send their children to the Little Folks Academy in Delray Beach. Owner Summer Bryant says she noticed right away.

"You realize their clothing is hand-me-down, hand-me-down, hand-me-down. The clothes are too big or too small, there is a great need," said Bryant.

The school can't afford to buy clothes, formula or diapers every time families can't provide. So Bryant asked the community for help and the response has been tremendous.

However, she says the need is still strong. Much of what the school collects, goes home with local families.

"If we get something nice we'll sent it home with someone who can use it," said Bryant.

Someone like Hudson.

"That was a generous offer to have the daycare say here's some clothes for you," said Hudson.
