Helping Other People Clothe People

Bread for the City’s clothing bank (in our Southeast center) is always hopping with fresh, free inventory and lots of folks coming through in search of business and casual wear. We get plenty of donations from the community, which we greatly appreciate.

For our allies over at So Others Might Eat, the need is more acute. SOME works with a clientele that is generally more chronically homeless than the people we see here at Bread for the City, and one of the many challenges of homelessness is that you can hardly keep clean sets of clothes lying around. (I wonder how these people in Baltimore store their running shoes.)

SOME’s Tracy Monson tells us:
“We need all types of men's summer clothing for the more than 30 gentleman whom we outfit each day.”

Contact Tracy if you’d like to donate your summer clothing.

And, because they are just that awesome, SOME let me know that other organizations like Martha’s Table are also in need.
