Clothing Thursday's

Mary's Kitchen clothing drive

Weekly distribution

Mary's Kitchen distributes clothes every Thursday's 10-11am. In addition, other necessities are provided such as shoes, underwear, socks, and seasonal items.

 

Our goal is simple, caring for homeless men, women and families by meeting their needs with basic clothing and daily life hygiene products. Mary's considers the dignity of each person living on the streets. As such, asking the hundreds served to wear clothing we wouldn’t wear ourselves is outside our mission. Unhoused individuals deserve clean, good quality ready to wear garments. Here are ways you can give and help build lives of many experiencing homelessness.
