Sometimes, it’s the smallest comforts that have the greatest impact.  Many of the people we serve often have limited access to everyday necessities and resources, including appropriate attire to wear to a job interview or sweaters to wear during a cold winter storm.  Professional clothing can mean the difference between a person feeling ill-prepared and at a disadvantage during a job interview versus feeling confident and dressed for success.  That’s where you come in! Clothing donations are needed. Clothing must be clean, ready-to-wear, in-season, and on hangers. Accessories and sweaters in bags or boxes are fine. See “Clothing Donations” link below for our complete list of acceptable clothing.
