Clothing & Accessory Donations

Through our “Find a Job” program, WFO provides low-income job seekers with professional attire. During their appointment, clients receive a one-on-one consultation with a stylist, who works with the client to put together a professional interview wardrobe. Once the client has secured a position, they are invited to return to WFO for a second appointment where they receive a week’s worth of business clothing to use at their new job. This program gives our clients the confidence, network and experience they need to pursue their career and is made possible through donations we receive from our generous contributors. If you are interested in donating to WFO, please read through our donation guidelines here.

*We do not accept donations directly to our offices during the week. Professional clothing donations must be delivered to our Drop Off locations or during our Curbside Drives (more information to the right). 

*All donations must be Clean, on Hangers and Ready to be worn to an interview.

Drop Off Locations

Due to limited resources, we do not offer pickup services.  To make donating items easier for you, we have partnered with local businesses to accept clothing donations during their normal business hours.  For a complete listing of drop off locations, visit the Drop Off Locations page by clicking the link below.
