Put Your Clothes to Work

Each spring, Goodwill asks employees at local businesses to clean out their closets and put their clothes to workby helping graduates from Goodwill and other job training programs as they enter or re-enter the workforce. Put Your Clothes to Work is an important corporate clothing drive that is planned and organized by a committee composed of key sponsors.

Last year, Goodwill collected nearly 34,000 pounds of clothing, which benefitted nearly 700 people through the Clothing Collaborative for Job Trainees, a quarterly event that Boston-based job training and placement program participants attend. Each Clothing Collaborative includes a wardrobe seminar to reinforce the basics of dressing appropriately for work followed by an opportunity for these individuals to “shop” and select career attire among the racks and racks of clothing and tables filled with accessories that were donated from the Put Your Clothes to Work drive. Volunteers and Goodwill staff support and help the participants put together a complete interview-appropriate outfit from the donated clothing, free of cost. You don't think the clothes you no longer wear can make a difference in someone's life? Think again.

Since the drive started, nearly 300,000 pounds of clothes and accessories for more than 7,000 men and women job seekers has been collected. Our partner companies choose a specific week or two weeks to hold their drives and Goodwill provides marketing materials about the drive, along with bins and racks to collect the clothing. Goodwill schedules a specific date and time to pick up your donations.

When you donate to Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries, you support Goodwill's mission to help people with barriers to employment find independence and dignity through work.
