How do I register?


The first time you come you will need to fill out our registration form.

If you need help with the form, our staff or volunteers will help you.


Make sure to bring:

  • I.D. for everyone in your family who lives with you

  • knowledge about your income and expenses

  • proof of your address

  • your own bags, if you have them

  • What do I do when I arrive for the clothing room?


    When you come take:

  • a clothing form (the other side of the food bank form)

  • a pencil


    If the clothing room is open, you may go ahead and choose your items.



    How does the Clothing Roomwork?


    Just choose the items you need for yourself and family.

    Write those items on the clothing form.

    Hand in your clothing form to the basket at the front desk.



    *Remember, only take what you need so there is enough for everyone!*



    How can I help?


    Last year we gave out 27,900 clothing items and 12,900 household items. We are a huge recycling pogram that lets people in need re-use items that are still in great condition.


    We can't give without your help!


    Here are the ways you can help:


    Donate items that are clean, in-style, and in good condition.


    Drop of items during our office hours 8:30 - 4:30 Monday to Friday.


    If you are not able to drop off items during those hours, try to drop them off in the morning before you go to work.


    Items that no one takes get sent overseas to be given out for free in 24 underdeveloped countries, we always need volunteers to sort through the items.


    Have a clothing, coat or boot drive at your work or school.


    If you run a retail shop, donate your seconds to us.


    Donate funds, it costs a lot of money to run Stratford House of Blessing.
