Dress for Success Vancouver wholeheartedly thanks you for your giving spirit. Your clothing donations are essential to our Dressing Services program that keeps our clients looking and therefore feeling their best.
At Dress for Success Vancouver, we welcome:
- Modern business suits and blazers
- Modern and professional pants, skirts and dresses
- Professional handbags in neutral colours
- Professional outerwear
- Professional footwear (we love flats, too!)
- Unopened nylons and undergarments new with tags
We are urgently in need of handbags, coats, clothing sized 12 and up and unopened beauty/personal care items. If you have a donation of these specific items please email hello@dfsvancouver.
We ask that you please donate these items elsewhere:
- Casual clothing
- Items older than three years old
- Items in need of cleaning or repair
- Men’s clothing (Donate to Working Gear)
- Children’s clothing
Before donating to us, always ask yourself if you would wear the garment it to a job interview. Sorting your items ahead of time to ensure all items are in good condition to donate alleviates a tremendous amount of work for our team. Clothing donations that do not fit our mandate cost us time and resources to sort and redistribute. Donating with Dignity does a wonderful job of describing how to make a meaningful clothing donation. If you still have questions about what we accept, please call and ask us.
Once you’ve collected your clothing donations please make an appointment to drop your items off at our boutique.
*We are currently booking drop-off appointments 6-8 weeks out. We know our appointment times are limited. If you require immediate drop-off, please consider donating to another organization such as Covenant House.
