Along with the meals we provide, we also distribute gently used everyday clothing (infant to adult sizes), shoes, blankets, sleeping bags, backpacks, etc. We are also in need of clothing appropriate for jobs and job interviews - suits, dress shirts, ties, dress slacks, dresses, etc.


Clothing donations are needed by many of homeless families in the world. But the need doesn't end there: more than 28 million children living in low-income families and their parents could also benefit from donated clothes.


Clothing-donation needs include: school clothes, coats and other cold-weather accessories, professional clothing for employment interviews, and shoes, which wear out quickly and must be replaced often, especially among growing children.


Donated clothes are critical for mothers and young children who must flee their homes because of domestic violence or abuse. Often these women and children leave under dangerous circumstances with only the clothes on their backs.


Clothes donations are also especially needed by homeless veterans. Up to 40 percent of homeless adults are veterans, with more joining their ranks from the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars.


Clothing donations should be clean, undamaged, and reasonably wrinkle-free. Clothing can be folded and packed in sturdy boxes or bags; avoid hangers. Items that come in pairs (shoes, gloves, socks) should be kept together (shoe laces can be tied together, gloves and socks can be stuffed inside each other). Pockets should be emptied and any belts should be securely fastened to their appropriate items.
