One of our greatest areas of need is supplying youth with school and career ready clothing. It costs approximately $500 per youth to supply clothing for one year. Often when youth come to SAY they do not own more than one set of clothes. Rather than donated clothing items, we request that gift cards are donated so that youth can take pride in choosing their own outfits. And gift cards are a great teaching moment for how to create and maintain a clothing budget! Our youth benefit from gift cards to any of the following stores:
All other clothing donations can be dropped off in the SAY Goodwill Bins (locations listed below). Goodwill partners with SAY to return any donations made into these designated bins with vouchers. These vouchers are given to young people who can use them to shop for their own clothing in Goodwill stores!
