Donate Clothing

For the safety and health of our staff and volunteers, we are accepting

limited donations of clothing. All drop off is no-contact and by

appointment only.

We accept donations of new and gently used clothing in all sizes, from infant through adult. Clothing should be in clean, wearable condition ready for immediate distribution, free of rips, stains and tears. We prefer donations to be seasonally appropriate, given our limited storage space.

 

We seek donations of new socks and new underwear in all sizes, from 3T through adult XL, for both boys and girls. To help each child we serve, we need at least 1,250 pairs each month. Feel free to purchase them at your favorite store. In the fall and winter, we need donations of new hats and gloves particularly in toddler and youth sizes.
