THE ANATOMY OF OUR CLOTHING BANK


In 2006, the charity was founded for the purpose of relieving poverty through the operation of a clothing bank. The organization then adopted 4 values to guide the operation   DIGNITY, COMPASSION, COMMUNITY & HOPE

 

These factors are important when working with the community programs.

 

Mental illness, Addiction, Anger management Issue, Limited Education and Employment Skills, Unexpected Job Loss, Disasters: Fire, Flooding, Accidents.

Community Clothing Programs

 

We offer several different programs with a goal to improve the community well-being, and to help those in need & crisis

Help Us with Legacy/Planned Giving

Our Charity financial planning and budgeting was and is a major challenge. We are charity supported by community efforts financially and by volunteering. The goal no 1 is to become sustainable and help community in need

Distribution:

 

We  operate a clothing bank through a retail storefront (The Clothing Center) open to the public.  All donations are dropped off at the clothing center, relying totally on community involvement.  We offer no pick-up service as operating at a  low budget.  We serve REFERRAL  cutomers and public.  Customers can select all they prefer for they needs.  If purchasing, all goods have a posted pricing model that is a fraction of thrift store pricing.

Result:

 

By welcoming the public to shop and purchase at the low prices, they can see what is being done with their donations and experience the environment we provide.  Our friendly community supported environment allows people to shop with dignity and to afford a few extras.  This promotes some sense of independence and dignity.  Once they no longer qualify or need clothing assistance, they have a place where they can pay their own way for as long as they want or need to.

Clientele:

 

As an organization, we have established partnership with over 150 social service agencies serving our city in some way or another. They  provide client referrals for the people they work with and are in crisis.  We also welcome public to make purchaseing and same support our organization
