Melissa Joan Hart, actress famous for her roles in “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Melissa & Joey,” visited Youth Villages’ Bartlett Campus today to meet children receiving help there and give out gifts from her King of Harts boys clothing line. In addition to providing the boys with King of Harts gifts, Hart visited with girls receiving help at Youth Villages’ Girls Center for Intensive Residential Treatment.

“I had a wonderful visit with these amazing kids today,” Hart said. “Family is something very important to me, and I love the work Youth Villages is doing to strengthen families by providing care and love for these children who need it so much.”

A member of Youth Villages’ board of advocates, Hart selected Youth Villages as a charity partner for her King of Harts clothing line and appears in a fundraising television spot for Youth Villages.

“We love Melissa because she really cares for the kids we are helping at Youth Villages,” said Youth Villages CEO Patrick Lawler. “She has a big heart for kids and families and is a wonderful advocate for our work. The kids were so excited to visit with her today, and we are really grateful for all the ways she helps us.”

Hart and her husband, Mark Wilkerson, have three sons and launched the King of Harts boys clothing line in 2014. After noticing a gap in the marketplace for cool, casual, functional boys clothing, the design duo was inspired to start their own line. King of Harts launched in spring 2015 with the Montauk collection, each season’s styles take their cue from a city where Hart and her family have traveled. The Fall 2015 collection was inspired by Lake Tahoe, where Hart and her family spend much of their vacation time. Highlights for the season include colorful plaid flannels, unique graphic tees and denim in rugged washes. Prices range from $25- $82, and the collection is sold exclusively on www.kingofharts.com. Hart chose Youth Villages as the line’s charitable partner, with proceeds from the collection’s Louie Tee supporting Youth Villages’ programs.
