    1. Thank you for your support! Donations will be accepted year-round in the Yawkey Center and there is a bin directly in front of the 5th-floor elevators.

  1. In our community we started the same type of “closet” called Redress. We had a lot of HS girls who couldn’t afford a dress for prom so it started small and 5 years later it’s a huge success! It’s for prom type dresses and open to any girl or woman who needs a dress,purse, shoes or jewelry for dances, proms,weddings. Everything is free, and we hold it 4 times a year. This March we gave away close to 500 dresses.

  2. I have a variety of gently worn women’s business casual clothes that I would love to donate including pants, blazers, and skirts, in a variety of sizes, both winter and summer. I would be able to drop them off in late April/early May and wonder if they would still be useful given that the end of the school year is approaching. Also, are you a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides donation information for tax purposes?
