The Clothing Bank provides free clothing to the community, an employment opportunity for women looking to get back into the work force, and a wonderful volunteer opportunity for all ages.

The Clothing Bank accepts gently used clothing for men, women and children and, through a referral process, redistributes the clothing to the community at no cost. Anyone who is need of clothing may make a request at any of our Empowerment Centers or any other approved human service agency center.

The Clothing Bank provides an empowering 15 week job training program, participating women will work to rebuild their reputations, renew their spirit, and reinvent themselves by discovering their potential. The women learn good work habits, fine tune basic job skills and receive job search support through resume development, polishing interviewing skills and application assistance.

We provide an excellent volunteer opportunity for individuals and groups with up to 30 people at a time at our Clothing Bank for all ages. It is an easy to follow, fulfilling and time efficient way to give back to our community.

The Clothing Bank offers multiple entry level volunteer projects in the form of clothing drives at work, school or church, sorting clothes at the warehouse, helping to complete clothing requests and delivery runs to various local distribution sites. If you would like to volunteer with our Clothing Bank, please email volunteer@friendshiphousede.org or visit our Volunteer Page for more information.
