Donate Clothing

We accept donations of new and gently used clothing in all sizes. Clothing should be in clean, wearable condition ready for immediate distribution, free of rips, stains and tears. We prefer donations to be seasonally appropriate.

 

We appreciate donations of new socks, and new underwear in all sizes (toddler through teen) and new hats and gloves (particularly in toddler and youth sizes). 

All clothing donations are by appointment only for the safety and health of our staff and volunteers,

 

All drop off is no-contact.
