Empower Women With the Clothes in Your Closet 

Do you have clothes that are barely worn or may even have tags hanging? Uncommon Threads is the perfect place to feel good about parting with your new or “like new” clothes, shoes, handbags, and accessories. It will feel great to know that your clothes will be loved and appreciated by another woman.


Because Uncommon Threads promotes dignity and respect, we are looking for stylish attire in new or nearly new condition. Your beautiful donations will give low-income women the tools to build self-esteem and self-worth.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a donation drop-off, please click on the link below or email our Donations Manager.
