We accept gently used seasonal clothing that is clean and in good condition! We are particularly in need of large and plus-size clothing for men, sneakers that are in good condition, and new, unopened socks and undergarments for men and women. Our guests are most in need of casual clothing for every-day wear; dress clothes and more formal or work-attire and shoes (such as women’s pumps) are better sent to organizations such as Dress for Success or Bread for the City.
