CLOTHING BANK

Ways we Help

The Clothing Bank provides an assortment of items, depending on donations. This usually includes clothing, shoes, accessories and household items. In addition, we can order items for your children (through age 12) from Eastside Baby Corner, giving us access to a great resource for infant and children’s clothes, baby gear and toys for all ages, and much more. 

We also often have camping gear for people who self-identify as being homeless and, depending on donations, can offer tents, sleeping bags and pads, tarps and warm clothing. 

  • Each household can take two bags of items each week from the Clothing Bank

  • Each household in the Food Bank zip codes can take one toiletry bag per month 

  • If there is a line to get into the Clothing Bank, customers will be let in in groups of 10 for about 10 minutes each to ensure everyone can shop in a relaxed, non-crowded environment

  • If you only want diapers or your toiletry bag, you do not need to wait in line - just ask the Clothing Bank Program Assistant for what you need.
