Clothes Less Traveled: #morethanastore

Thanks to the generosity of their customers, donors, and volunteers  in Peachtree City and surrounding counties, Clothes Less Traveled has been able to give back over $7,000,000 since our humble beginning in 1997. Clothes Less Traveled funds over thirty non-profits each year that feed hungry children, serve our veterans, provide seniors with healthcare, rescue animals, sustain nature preserves, build homes for homeless families, treat cancer patients, shelter women, and more. Additionally, they are able to send teens to college through our scholarship program for high school students. They are certainly #MoreThanAStore.
