The Clothes Silo is a women’s boutique and a major empowerment program of WHEAT. At the Clothes Silo, we believe every woman should have convenient and affordable access to quality clothing and accessories.
Since 1985, our Client Assistance Program has helped economically disadvantaged women succeed in the workplace, build careers and achieve a better future for themselves and their families. We continue to do this by collaborating with over 120 local agencies, providing training and free work wear to women in need.
When a client is sent to us, our volunteers and staff guide her in finding appropriate attire; nurturing her self-esteem and boosting her confidence along the way. We hope to help each client define what success means to her as she shops with us.
Who Do You Help?
The Clothes Silo provides free work wear, to women in need. Allowing our clients to use their limited financial resources for priorities such as food and shelter. All of our clients are referred to us by social workers from schools, places of worship, shelters and social service agencies.
You can make a difference by choosing to donate, shop, or volunteer with us.
Donate: We rely on donations of new and gently-used women’s clothing and accessories to make our customers and clients look and feel their best! We accept donations ranging from casual wear, like jeans and tees, to business professional attire, like blazers and suits. Our clients have a variety of clothing needs and your donations can help us meet those. If you are not sure about donating certain items or styles, please call us at 602/264.2262 to find out more information.
Shop: The Clothes Silo is open to the public. We encourage our customers to think secondhand first. Their purchases help our clients become self-sufficient while making recycled fashion a part of their everyday lives. Monies made from your purchases support WHEAT’s Clothes Silo and our training and education programs.
