Professional Clothing Donations

We encourage our employees to donate gently used professional clothing to one of the Baltimore-area organizations that work to provide professional wear for formerly homeless, disabled or low-income men and women just entering or re-entering the workforce.

Below is a list of local organizations that run employment programs and services and are open to receiving clothing donations.

Donation Guidelines
 

Because of limited storage space, agencies ask that you donate clothing appropriate to the season.

Donated clothing should be the following:

  • New or gently used
  • Clean (dry-cleaned or laundered)
  • Not stained or damaged
  • Appropriate to wear to the office, including:
    • Suits

    • Tailored separates

    • Blouses, shirts

    • Business casual attire, such as khaki pants (not jeans), nice-looking sweaters, polo shirts, etc.

    • Ties, scarves

    • Shoes in very good condition

The general rule is, if you would not wear it because of its condition, do not donate it to someone else who needs to make a good first impression when looking for a job.

Please divide men's and women's clothing into separate marked bags before you drop them off. Clothing should not be on hangers as they make pickup and delivery challenging and dangerous.
