About Clothing Works

When looking for a job, making a strong first impression is critical during the interview process. Unfortunately, many people don’t have the resources or coaching to look their very best. That’s where ClothingWorks comes in.

ClothingWorks uses community support, such as donations of high quality clothing as well as the skills and time of dedicated staff and volunteers, to give job seekers clothing and confidence to make the best possible first impression with prospective employers.

Our Mission

Promoting economic independence of people by providing professional attire, a network of support and the tools to foster confidence and achievement in work and life.

Our History

Established in 1998, ClothingWorks has been a valued resource in the community, assisting over 10,000 individuals.  Hosted by Goodwill Industries, Ontario Great Lakes since 2014, ClothingWorks depends on the support of donors, volunteers and community partners.

How It Works

DONATE CLOTHING.

Interview clothing donations are always welcome to provide a constant flow of inventory to meet client needs.

Where to donate

DONATE MONEY.

On average, the cost to assist one person with the essential start-up necessities is $90.  Personal and corporate monetary donations to ClothingWorks are a great way to give someone a hand up, as opposed to a hand-out (taxable receipt will be issued).

Donate online

ORGANIZE A CLOTHING DRIVE.

Placing clothing racks and signage at an event or office provides an opportunity for everyone to clean out their closets and support job seekers who need interview clothing.

Run a clothing drive

VOLUNTEER.

Investing your time is an excellent way to help ClothingWorks.  As one of our amazing volunteers, you might help with events, with donation drives, sorting and merchandising, or working with our clients as a volunteer consultant.
