Help outfit our neighborhood kids so they can focus on school
The Clothesline remains committed to our goal of helping low-income families find quality clothing for their children. Our clients trust us to offer support with Dignity, Understanding, and Kindness.
- We have given away nearly 4,500 wardrobes!
- Over 100,000 items of clothing provided - free of charge - to families in need!
- Last winter, more than 700 winter coats went out the door for school kids to stay toasty at the bus stop!
One grateful client let us know that "Because of the pandemic, we need money for rent and food...now, I do not have to buy clothes anymore." Another client told us that "I feel like the The Clothesline really understands what the kids are looking for -- to feel comfortable -- and they do their best to help. It's made a big difference for our family."
We need your help more than ever this Summer season! In addition to clothing donations, your financial support is critical. It pays for the lease on the store, new socks and underwear in bulk, special high-priority items like shoes, and our small but dedicated staff.
Please consider making a recurring donation. Your regular support -- at whatever level is comfortable for you -- supports The Clothesline on an ongoing basis, allowing us to plan for future needs of low-income Arlington families. After all, kids don't stop growing. Thank you for your support!
Our Mission: Collect new and clean, gently-used quality clothing from the community, and distribute it free-of-charge to low-income school-aged children in a welcoming space. Please visit our website for more details: http://www.clotheslinearlington.org/
