We are excited to announce that our free clothing store, The Clothesline, has a new home!
In the past 15 years, The Clothesline has provided clothing to over 10,000 children and adults recovering from crisis or hardship. The success of this program has caused us to outgrow our current space, tucked away in a basement across the street from Hiawatha Park.
We’ll be moving into the first floor of a building just behind Hotwire Coffee in the Junction, formerly the location of the WS Christian Church Preschool. The new location is three times as large and will allow us to significantly increase the number of people we can help get comfortable clothing for school, work, or everyday life!
We need your help! We need to raise $17,000 by March 31st, 2017 for renovation, moving costs, and furnishings to make the new Clothesline a safe and welcoming space. Donations of any amount help!
$50 buys toys and puzzles for the children’s play area
$100 buys two clothing racks for professional attire
$150 pays for a moving truck for a day
$250 covers a month of volunteer supplies and snacks
$500 provides a new coat of paint and carpet for a whole shopping section
$1000 keeps the Clothesline running for 2 weeks, enough to get clothing to 120 families!
This new building is an amazing opportunity to help our neighbors when they need us most. With your support, we can make the new Clothesline better than ever without taking any funding away from our other emergency services.
From all of us at the West Seattle Helpline, THANK YOU for being part of our generous and caring community!
