Providing Clothing for People in Need
City Mission offers clothing, free of charge, for men, women and children staying at our shelters. We also partner with local agencies to help their clients with free clothing through a referral voucher system.
We also partner with several local schools to help clothe children in need by providing free clothing rooms at the school.
If you or someone you know is in need of clothing, please call 518.346.2275 for more information.
How to Help Others Through Clothing Donations
Your clothing donations make a difference!
We accept clothing and shoes of ANY condition-- including torn, dirty or stained items. The items we can't use will be recycled and the proceeds will go directly towards supporting the programs of City Mission! Donations can be dropped off at any of our Red Donation Boxes.
If you would like a tax deductible receipt for your clothing donations, please drop it off at our Administration Building 425 Hamilton Street Monday-Friday 8am-4pm.
Dress for Success
We help men and women prepare for job interviews by providing them with a business suit or other professional clothing items. Volunteers and staff help men and women put together outfits that are appropriate for the workplace so they have the greatest chance of success!
Operation Warm and Safe
During the cold winter months, we provide nearly 1,000 winter coats for men, women and children in need. We also give away hats, gloves, boots, scarves and other winter gear to keep people safe from the cold.
