Resources for People in Need of Clothing

Emergency Clothing: Friendship House Clothing Bank
Friendship House Clothing Bank receives donated clothing from various churches and businesses. Through a referral from Friendship House or another human service agency, clients may order clothing for themselves and/or their children from the Clothing Bank every two months. If the appropriate clothing in the necessary sizes is available, orders are usually filled in five working days.
During cold weather, the Friendship House Day Centers try to keep some items like gloves, knit hats and socks on hand.
