Even at a used-clothing outlet, the cost of clothing a family of four can be devastating for transitioning families. And the vast majority of homeless families are single-parent families — primarily mothers with small or grade-school children.
At the Children's Clothing Exchange, they trade for what they need — an eight-year old's winter coat for a ten-year old's summer outfit. Good quality for good quality. We take toys, too.
People can register with them so that when they drop clothes etc. off, the number of bags are logged on their sheet. They then can take bags of clothes, etc. for their kids. They have tons of baby gear (for free), tons of toys/books/videos (for free), shoes and clothes for kids (exchange rate of one bag donated, one bag to take), infant cloth diapers and supplies, and mom stuff.
Of course you can drop stuff off there and not take anything in return as well.
