Kelli’s Kloset was started in Memory of their Loving Daughter Kelli Leigh Richmond, by parents Ron and Patsy Richmond.
Kelli was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer October 23, 2009. During Kelli’s 2 1/2 year battle with Ovarian Cancer, she was very concerned about what underprivileged people did for new clothes while undergoing cancer treatment. Most patients gain and lose weight during treatments and they need new clothes from time to time.
She told her mother that when she got better she would start a place where all women cancer patients can get clothes that fit for FREE.
She said, “I will call it Kelli’s Kloset.” Unfortunately, Kelli didn’t live to make her dream come true. The foundation opened Kelli’s Kloset Saturday, June 7th, 2014.
Located in the Sherwood Plaza at 11240 Florida Boulevard Baton Rouge, LA 70815 (At the intersection of Florida and Sherwood). Kelli’s Kloset provides FREE clothes and accessories for all women cancer patients, their kids, and any kids battling cancer!
Open Wednesdays & Fridays from 10 am – 4 pm and Saturdays 10 am – 2 pm. If you would like to donate slightly used clothes, shoes, purses, belts & scarves you can bring them by the store during store hours.
Kelli’s Kloset is also always looking for Volunteers to help out in the store.
The Foundation also grants Monthly Birthday Wishes to Ovarian Cancer Patients. 80% of ovarian cancer patients only live for an average of 2 years from the time they are diagnosed. The main reason for the short life expectancy is that most aren’t diagnosed until their cancer is Stage 3 or 4, because there is no test for ovarian cancer.
