The Share Clothing and Linen program, co-located with the Share food pantry, accepts donations of seasonal clothing, shoes and household linens and provides them free of charge to Share clients.  The two rooms are open Wednesday and Saturday from 9:30 – noon and they serve about 35 clients each day.  We accept donations during operating hours, or they can be left in the covered receptacle outside the Share entrance anytime.  We need volunteers to help manage the clothing rooms every Wednesday and Saturday – please see the volunteer job descriptions on the volunteer page.

Holding a Clothing & Linen Drive

One of the most effective ways to collect needed clothing and linens for Share is to hold a drive at your school, business,  community or religious organization.  Middle and High School students can receive community service hour credits for organizing a drive.
