The Career Clothes Cottage at CCHASM support women residing in the CCHASM service area to shop free of charge for interview and work attire. We have clothing ranging from petite to plus-size and both traditional suits to workplace scrubs.
Throughout the year, we welcome donations of new and gently used items that are clean, undamaged and free of stains.
Due to storage limitations, we prefer season-appropriate items. For the coming months, this includes fall and winter clothing such as winter coats, gloves, hats, boots...even Thanksgiving or Christmas sweaters.
CCHASM serves a variety of clients for reasons including:
Women with circumstances requiring them to return to work
Women from emergency situations including domestic violence survivors
Women within designated re-entry programs transitioning from incarceration to the community and workplace
We are often looking for jewelry, purses, and suitcases, new undergarments (in packages or with tags). Most recently, we are looking to provide clients with a popular request for new leggings.
Finally, large paper shopping bags, totes, and suitcases assist clients with the transport of their new items. Thank you for your donations and support!
Donations may be dropped off on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 9:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. at 12117 Percival St. Chester, Virginia 23831. Want to make a clothing or financial donation? Click here to get more information.
