CLOTHES FOR CHANGE
COVID-crisis update: Our store is closed until further notice and we are not able to accept donations.
We operate Clothes For Change as client-supporting program and then as a retail thrift-store, at our facility at 1073 Roosevelt Crescent. Entry to the retail store is through our front door. We welcome everyone to shop and find great women’s and men’s clothing at great prices – for a good cause!
Clothes For Change has two roles in support of our programs:
In support of our Client Programs – Firstly, we provide Core Program clients with three complete outfits of clothing seasonally. This ensures that clients have appropriate clothing for job-interviews and new jobs or return to school. Emergency Need Clients can receive two outfits each year. Volunteers serving in Clothes For Change are always available to assist clients with wardrobe choices. In 2019, more than 700 clients received clothing as part of this program.
As a retail thrift-store – Secondly, we sell quality second-hand clothes and shoes for adults at prices competitive with other thrift outlets, from inventory that remains after clients are supplied. The store is open to the public Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm. We operate as a social enterprise and all revenues are used in support of Harvest Project programs. For retail customers, items are for sale as-is, with no holds or store-credits available.
We welcome donations of women’s and men’s new or gently-used clothing, shoes and accessories.
