For this month's KSAT Community nonprofit feature, San Antonio Threads is making a difference in the city of San Antonio by providing  young people with new clothes, shoes, underwear and personal care items for free!

"We provide a safe and nurturing shopping experience for deserving teens currently in foster care, who have transitioned out of foster care, are homeless, or have experienced an emergency situation," said Cathy Hamilton, a board member at San Antonio Threads.

Young people ages 12-21 who are eligible for the free items can shop twice a year for free at San Antonio Threads.

San Antonio Threads is projected to serve over 1,200 young people in 2018 -- triple the number served last year.
