A mom named Evelyn in San Francisco is the keeper of a lending closet of infant and toddler snow gear. She has clothes ranging from 3 months to 4T available for anyone to borrow for free. If you have gear to donate, especially for larger sizes like 5 and 6T, please reach out to her. She'll also accept mittens and gender neutral clothing to loan out.
