We accept clothing appropriate for job interviews.
We ask that clothing donations be:
• current in style (3 years old or less)
• clean and in excellent condition
• current season
Here is a list of the type of items we accept:
• 2 pc. Suits
• Purses, totes, portfolios
• Dress pants
• Lightweight cardigans/sweater sets
• Coats (in season)
We can only accept brand NEW bras and hosiery.
Ask yourself, “Would I wear this to a job interview?” If the answer is “No,” we recommend you donate those articles to other worthy organizations. (see below)
If we receive like new clothing that is not appropriate for the workplace, we send those items to a women-owned consignment shop to sell. The proceeds we receive are used to purchase brand new bras for our participants and to cover the other costs associated with the operation of the boutique.
Other places to donate items
There are numerous worthy nonprofits in the metro G.R. area who would gladly accept those items that we are unable to accept. Below are a few suggestions. We know these organizations well and appreciate their partnership in the work they do to further the empowerment of women and their families in West Michigan.
