About the Clothing Bank
Our Clothing Bank is made up of two large warehouses. Our mission is to provide new or gently used clothing to men, women, and children throughout Delaware. Annually, we successfully process approximately 200,000 pounds of clothing, and over 11,000 individuals receive clothing assistance from us.

Our dedication to serving the community with compassion and generosity remains unwavering, and we strive to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need through our Clothing Bank.

Creating Excellent Outcomes (CEO) Job Training Program
The Clothing Bank offers an empowering job and life skills training program designed to support women to rebuild their reputations, revitalize their spirits, and rediscover their true potential. Throughout the program, these women acquire positive work habits, fine-tune essential job skills, and receive comprehensive job search support. This support includes assistance with resume development, enhancing interviewing skills, and guidance in completing job applications. Through these efforts, the program aims to help women transform their lives and create a brighter future for themselves.

Volunteerism
Our Clothing Bank provides a wonderful volunteer opportunity for all ages and abilities. We welcome volunteers throughout the week to help sort clothing and will offer weekend opportunities for groups of 10 or more. We have opportunities for individuals, small groups, and larger groups of up to 30 people. In addition to sorting clothing, we have opportunities for drivers to assist with moving items.
