Need Clothing?

The Clothesline aims to provide a comfortable and fun space in which students and their families can find a wide variety of clothing options. Qualifying students will be able to select a full wardrobe of clothing twice a year, free of charge.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are uncertain when we can re-open safely. Until that time, we are pleased to offer a pre-selected wardrobe of clothing from our inventory of summer items. Please click the button below and complete the form for each of your eligible children. We will contact you to schedule a time to pick up your clothing outside our store. Please give us at least one week to process your request as we have no volunteer help at this time.

The wardrobe will include:

  • 5 tops, shirts or blouses
  • 4 bottoms, pants, shorts or skirts
  • 5 pairs of new underwear and socks (once per school year)
  • 2 dresses

We will make every attempt to match color and style requests. However, please note that all items may not be available. At this time, we are unable to offer returns or exchanges.
