Why don’t you take clothing donations anymore?
In order to keep staff focused on caring well for the needs of our campus guests and community neighbors, Water Street has partnered with thrift store experts – CommunityAid – to care for our guests’ clothing needs.
When you donate your new or gently used items to CommunityAid on behalf of Water Street, CommunityAid donates a portion of their profits to us. Not only that, but they donate gift cards to their thrift store so our guests can shop for free!

Do you take handmade items (hats, scarves, blankets)?
We appreciate the time and care you put into creating handmade items. While these items are fashionable and lovely, they do not adequately protect guests in negative degree weather and wind chill.
