Women Giving Back
Donate your new or gently used professional clothing for women in homeless shelters!
Women Giving Back (WGB) is a HomeAid program that provides free clothing to women and children in Northern Virginia homeless shelters. Many women in the shelters are employed or attending school and need professional clothing and accessories to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
Volunteer at the Women Giving Back Store!
The WGB Store is open the second Saturday of each month so that homeless women can shop, free of charge, for the items they need. We rely on volunteers to help sort clothing and prepare the Store for shoppers Wednesdays and Fridays before the Store opening. Volunteers also help run the Store while it’s open, assisting women in choosing the right outfits and restocking clothing racks.
Open the second Saturday of each month
9:00am – 12:00pm
20 Export Drive
We accept “like new” clothing. Our litmus test: Would I wear this?
Our women and children are looking to start again and need to present a dignified, professional appearance.
Things we need:
Suits, separates, business attire, shoes, jewelry, coats, unopened make up & toiletries, purses & business accessories. Children’s clothing, shoes and toys.
Things we do not accept:
Tee-shirts, worn out clothing, stained clothing, missing buttons, dirty clothing.
We are 100% volunteer and it takes hours to go through the clothing and separate out the unacceptable. It would help us if you did this. Clothing MUST be clean. On hangers if preferable.
If you would like to donate clothing or volunteer, please contact the Women Giving Back Task Force at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Marjie at 703-554-9386.
