With the success and rapid growth of Proozy.com, we believe it is essential to give back and support our community. Our business is built to outfit families so they can live the life they want. In 2019, we created The Proozy Gives Back Foundation to expand our mission of giving.
As the leading initiative in the Proozy Gives Back Foundation, we created the Proozy Cares Closet - partnering with M Health Fairview clinics to help support mental health in our youth.
Did you know that 1 in 6 U.S. youth experience a mental health disorder each year? That 50% of all lifetime mental illness begins by age 14 or that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-14?
We are now in 5 clinics in the community where kids come and select items they need so they feel good about themselves and can focus on their mental health or addiction treatment. Each closet has been supplied with basic clothing needs including undergarments, socks, shoes, t-shirts, hoodies, pants, joggers and seasonal gear to the courageous young people in treatment.
We want the kids to know our community cares about them and that they matter. Getting new clothing at such a hard time contributes to their comfort and hope as they begin their journey to wellness.
With your help, we can make a major impact. By 2025, our goal is to outfit a million kids. We need your help in making this happen so we can continue to invest in our closet build outs and expand into new clinics and communities.
It is with great honor that Jeremy and I have created the Proozy Cares Closet. We are humbled by our mission, and we look forward to our continued partnership with M Health Fairview Behavioral Health Services.
