Guidelines for Clothing Donations

You may bring your clothing donations anytime during the posted hours on your scheduled date. If someone else is dropping off, please wait and maintain social distancing. Wear a mask.


We are located at 47 Purdy Avenue in Port Chester, on the left side of Purdy Avenue, just past Townsend. Look for a blue sign with multiple business names. Turn left into our driveway and come up the hill. Bear right into the parking lot.

Drop off guidelines:

  • All donations must be in closed plastic bags no larger than a kitchen garbage bag
  • We cannot accept donations in reusable grocery bags, open bags or paper bags 
  • Please do not use lawn bags or black garbage bags. Limit the the weight of each of your bags.
  • Drop off is no-contact into carts on our loading dock. You must place your own donations into the cart.
  • We suggest you create a separate out items for recycling. Recycling includes used socks and underwear, stained items, public school and camp items, dirty or damaged shoes, towels and linens.
  • Donate seasonally appropriate clothing. This allows us to devote our limited and precious volunteer time and effort to sorting and packing clothing that is needed immediately. 
    • We prefer fall and winter clothing from August  - February 
    • Spring and Summer clothing from February  - July

In addition to clothing - we accept diapers, feminine hygiene products, new socks and new underwear. We have an acute need at all times for new underwear especially in men's sizes for teen boys.

Items we do not accept:

  • Used Toys
  • Nursing or maternity items
  • Used infant accessories (baby bottles)
  • Furniture
  • Bedding 
  • Crib accessories

Covid Guidelines

  • Do not donate if you are sick, or a family member has been sick in the last 30 days. Save your donations until you and everyone in your family has been well for at least 10 days.


We will email you a receipt that you can print for your records at the end of the week.
