My Sister's Closet relies on donations from individuals, corporations, and groups who run clothing drives. By donating to My Sister's Closet, you can help women feel good about themselves and be better prepared for finding jobs in their "new" clothes.
The clothing in My Sister's Closet is professional work attire. For example, clothes one might wear on an interview or to a professional job. Although you can donate any type of clothing, only professional clothing is available in the "closet". Non-professional clothing will be distributed to YWCA residents and clients or used for fundraising for YWCA programs. Appreciated items are:
•professional (cleaned) women's clothing, in sizes 12 and up.
•shopping bags with handles
To arrange for your donation please call LaVergne Harden Danzy at (315) 471-9480.
We appreciate it if clothing is left on hangers or delivered in another container that does not need to be returned to the donor.
