Kinds of Clothing Needed
Because of limited storage space, it is helpful to the agencies if you donate clothing appropriate to the season of the collection.
Donated clothing should be:
- New or gently used
- Clean (dry-clean or laundered)
- Not stained or damaged
- Appropriate to wear to the office, including:
- Tailored Separates
- Blouses, shirts
- "Business casual" attire including khaki pants (not jeans), nice looking sweaters, polo shirts, etc.
- Ties, scarves
- Shoes in very good condition
The general rule is, if you would not wear it because of its condition, do not donate it to someone else who needs to make a good first impression when looking for a job.
Please divide the men's and women's clothing into separate marked bags before you drop it off. Also, please do not place clothing on hangers as they make pick-up and delivery challenging and dangerous.
