Join Our Annual Clothing Drive For Covenant House!

We are extremely fortunate to live in one of the most wonderful cities in the world and chances are if you're reading this post that you have a roof over your head, food in your fridge, and a warm bed to sleep in tonight. You probably also have a couple of hoodies, sweaters, jeans, and jackets in your closet that you haven't worn in a while. Why not do something good with those items and donate them to Covenant House to pass on to the street youth they help in our city? 

We know you're busy and have a lot going on, so we've made it super easy too. Besides being able to drop off your donations at Covenant House 24hrs a day any day of the week, we've also found some amazingly supportive businesses and events across the city to partner with us and sign up as drop off locations. Some are even giving you deals for bringing in your gently used clothing! Check out the full listing of drop off locations and event details by clicking "Read More." A huge thank you to all the businesses and people that are helping us do a little good around our city. Because really, it's too easy not to. It just makes sense.
