Clothing and Hygiene

We kindly ask for clean, gently used clothing from our donors.  This helps assist our volunteers who sort and display clothing and shoes.  We also ask for new, unused hygiene items to provide to our clients. 

We take donated clothing in all sizes for men, women, children, and infants. We also take gently used shoes for all ages and sizes.  

During the winter months we are able to provide coats because of generous donations from the Knights of Columbus Councils in our local Catholic parishes, as well as other private donors.

Due to limited space, we can only display clothing for the current season, and may not always have something for every family member.  Depending on availabilty, we provide clothing to our clients every 30 to 60 days.  Please let our volunteers know in advance if you have a job interview or special occasion, and we will do our best to help you prepare with appropriate clothing. 

We are not a thrift store; we give our clothing and shoes to our clients.

In order to provide you with assistance for clothing and hygiene items, you need to be able to communicate your needs to us.  If you do not speak English, you must provide an interpreter to allow us to serve you with clothing, hygiene items, and household goods.  Thank you for your understanding.

  • Bar soap
  • Deodorant

Your donations, large or small, are greatly appreciated by our clients. Thank you!
