What is Clothesline?

What is Clothesline?

Inspired by a new model of philanthropy that has already benefited families in need across the country, The Clothesline is Arlington’s first free clothing store dedicated to school-aged children.

 With the generous donation of new and gently used clothing from Arlington residents and businesses, The Clothesline provides a welcoming, fun, retail-like environment for low-income families to shop for and select a season’s worth of quality clothing – twice a year – completely free.  Staffed and supported entirely by local volunteers, The Clothesline represents Arlington at our best – neighbors helping neighbors.

Our Mission

To provide clothing free-of-charge to school-aged children of needy families in a welcoming, fun retail experience that will help children feel comfortable and confident in the classroom.
