LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Many children in foster care have only a few things they can truly call their own, but an organization in Davidson County is working to change that.

The organization is called iamJ3 and they've opened what they're calling a Foster Closet on East First Street in Lexington.

All foster families are welcome to go shopping at the closet for things like new clothes, toys and backpacks for free. They carry new and gently used items for infants up to 18-year-olds.

“Because they move around from home to home, starting out their family life is not good. That's why they are in foster care. When they leave, most of them have a garbage bag and that's it, that’s all they have. So we want this to be where they can come in here and just shop and have good clothes,” said Brent Moore, Foster Closet founder.
