Clothing Showers Laundry

At CRC we help participants establish basic needs by providing them with clean high-quality clothes and small housewares, as well as free shower and laundry services.

Clothing Program

Clothing ProgramCRC’s Clothing Program is available for anyone who needs clean and good-quality clothing for people’s personal or work purposes.

Our program is seasonal, meaning that we gear the availability of items to the time of year. For example, we make available winter coats and boots (all new or gently used) during the winter season.

Participants and neighbours can make use of our clothing program by booking an appointment in advance. Participants can access our program once per month and can access up to 6 items per visit.

In addition to clothing, people can also access household items and personal hygiene items depending on their needs.

The program relies for the most part on donations. Our donors include our many friends and supporters, some long-time and some new. If you have quality used clothing you would like to donate, we would be happy to receive them. We are always happy to make new friends to support this program!

With the help of our volunteers all donations are sorted and stocked to ensure ease of availability for our participants.
