Clothing Donations

The Clothesline actively solicits clothing donations from the community in support of its mission.  In keeping with our focus, we request that clothing be appropriate for school aged kids (K-12).

To best use our valuable volunteer time and limited store space, please ensure that donations are clean and in excellent condition.  We cannot use clothing that is:

  • Stained
  • Damaged
  • Worn out or with pet hair

For more details about our donation criteria, please see our current donation flyer.
