“Smart Works prepared me mentally to return to work. By dressing me from head to toe in an incredibly smart two piece and shirt, I felt empowered. I turned many heads and looked smart for my interview. I got the job.”

We welcome donations of high-quality clothes in all sizes.


Clothing donations need to be high-quality, interview-appropriate, and in really great condition in order to help our clients feel confident and empowered before their job interview.

Thanks to every donation each woman and non-binary person who walks through our doors knows that another person cares about them and has invested in their future.

We will always accept high-quality, nearly new clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories. We are currently in particular need of the following pieces:

Clothing in sizes 16+ Flat shoes Handbags Coats
