LUBBOCK, Texas -

Caleb's Closet has another $10,000 to help provide school essentials for kids in the foster care system. 

Amerigroup donated the funds. This will help purchase school supplies for the 2020 school year. Last year it gave free backpacks filled with supplies and its hoping to expand on needed items with this grant. 

Its mission seeks to stand in the gap for foster care families in our area who may not have those basis essentials. 

"Our support system within our community comes out in such an amazing way for Caleb's Closet with donations we've been able to extend that generosity to those individuals in need," President of Caleb's Closet Jennifer Hallgren said. "Recently we had a foster care family that lost their home to a fire. We were able to provide them with new clothes and wardrobe items to replace what they'd lost." 

The non-profit will serve nearly 1,500 kids by the end of the year.
