  • Ballet Flats
  • Size 16+ Clothes

SEASONAL WORKWEAR NEEDS

  • February and Early March Needs: Our boutique is still offering WINTER WORKWEAR which means we need Heavy Coats, Winter Boots and Accessories!
  • Late March, April and May Needs: Think warm thoughts! Starting in March, we can also receive your open-toed shoes and lighter wear in preparation for SPRING. If you’ve booked for April or May dates we will no longer be able to accept winter clothing and can only accept SPRING AND SUMMER workwear at that point.

DONATING SAFELY PROTOCOLS BY CAR

  • Separate Shoes, Accessories and Workwear into separate piles
  • Wash and fold your clothes (dry clean, if necessary) - uncleaned clothing will mean the loss of everything in the bag.

  • Load your bags into the trunk of your car
  • Arrive within your scheduled time
  • Pull into the client parking at the entrance of the West-Side CREA Lot of 200 Catherine Street

DONATING SAFELY PROTOCOLS ON FOOT
