Free Clothing Store

Our Free Clothing Store equips our families up to twice a month with clothing for every member of their household. Every piece of clothing provides dignity and value to each individual who walks through our doors.

All clothing is provided through individual donations and community partner drives.

Types of Donations

  • We are happy to accept all new or gently-used clothing donations! We accept donations during regular operating hours, Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
  • We strive to provide the highest quality clothing that we can to our clients, so we ask that all clothing is washed before donating. Additionally, for sanitation reasons, we cannot accept used undergarments, and for copyright reasons, we cannot accept any business or organization uniforms.

For more information, please contact our offices at (423) 472-4414, or email us.
