Donate Clothing

Donating women’s clothes and accessories to Wings is an important way to support our organization. We appreciate and depend on the generosity of our community to keep our closets full.

Because of the nature of our organization, we need to adhere to standards that will allow the deserving women from our community to present themselves for interviews and employment at their best.

We are in need of quality clothing in current styles, both professional and business casual that are in new or like new condition, clean and free of any needed repairs. Due to our constant space challenges and limited volunteer resources, we keep this information updated as to our current needs.

Please note that the majority of our clients are between the ages of 22 and 35.

Even if you have donated in the past, please look over our donation standards and current needs.

Donation Standards

Clothing and accessories must:

  • have been purchased in the past 3 years
  • be in new or like new condition
  • be clean and odor-free
  • be free of any needed repairs
  • be for the current season or transitional seasons
  • be free from visible wear, inside and out for handbags and shoes
It is of great help to us for clothing to be on hangers or folded neatly in shopping bags that we can then re-use for our clients. Accessories and jewelry may also be placed in reusable shopping bags. Boxes, bins and large plastic trash bags present challenges for our volunteers and our space and we would appreciate your extra efforts in avoiding using them at drop-off.
Donation Needs

Our current, most needed items are:

  • Jewelry (any type)
  • Dark plain dressy jeans (boot or straight leg)
  • Leggings (new or like new) and tights (new)
  • Open front cardigan sweaters and sweater jackets
  • Scrubs without logos
  • New smooth-cup bras in nude, black and white, especially larger sizes
  • New shapewear in nude and black, especially larger sizes
  • Camisoles in tan, black, white and navy, especially larger sizes
  • Handbags in new or like-new condition
  • Spring raincoats and light jackets
Large Donations

If you are a retailer, wholesaler, professional stylist, organizer or just cleaning out a large closet and have a large quantity of clothing to donate to Wings, please contact us prior to drop off. Email us or call our Frazer office at 610-644-6323 ext. 1.

Clothing and Accessory Drives

We are often approached by community organizations and businesses asking how they can help as a group. One of the most popular choices is to host a drive. Drives asking for specific donations of new and like-new jewelry, scrubs, coats and toiletries have been popular with groups.

If this is something you’re interested in organizing with your group or business, please email us or call our Frazer office at 610-644-6323 ext. 1 to contact us prior to planning your collection.

Donation Days

Donation days are held once per month at our Frazer office, on the second Saturday morning from 9am-12 noon. Tax receipts are available at the time of drop off.

If you haven’t already, please read the information above for our donation standards and current needs and visit our events calendar for our upcoming donation day dates.

Our Kennett Square office is only able to take limited donations and by appointment only. Please call 610-644-1446 or email us to inquire.

We do appreciate your understanding of our mission and our limitations regarding our standards for donations. We would be happy to direct you to other local, worthy organizations that are better equipped to accept the items we’re unable to receive.

We are unable to pick-up donations.

We do occasionally consign high-end clothing and accessories that have been donated to us. We purchase items such as undergarments (we only provide new) from the proceeds of those sales.
