Clothing is a life necessity, but it’s not something everyone can easily afford, limiting their ability to find and maintain employment, as well as regain a sense of self after a crisis. As part of our efforts to build stability and further self-reliance, we offer the Back on Track program, supplying free work clothing as customers prepare for job interviews, training and more. Emergency clothing is also available for men, women and children as needed.

This wrap-around service is just part of what Freestore Foodbank offers to help families during difficult times. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to accept any used clothing at this time but will accept monetary donations and packaged/new items such as socks, undergarments (men and women) and new shoes. Each autumn, we also host a coat and cold weather drive for all ages. For more information about our clothing availability or our most requested items, please call 513-241-1064.
