How to run a clothing drive
Our Clothing Program is entirely dependent on generous donors providing quality clothing and bedding.
We are fortunate to have many committed donors, who continuously support us with individual donations and
through running Clothing Drives.
Clothing Drives are an excellent way to participate in a meaningful initiative that directly impacts our clients. Additionally, clothing drives build team spirit and group morale, through a sense of achievement in successfully collaborating on a philanthropic project. The resources below can be used as a starting point to initiate and implement a successful Clothing Drive.
