The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is that no person or family within our service area lacks the clothing they need to secure employment, maintain a healthy and hygienic life, and be socially accepted.
Clothes Cabin provides free clothing, shoes, and household linens to low income indivduals and families. Clothes Cabin also conducts a back to work program to provide steel-toed work boots to men who require them for employment and a free laundry service to our homeless clients. The services offered here at Clothes Cabin are not offered by any other organization in the area. Our residents have no other resource dedicated to providing the services we offer without the burden of costs they just cannot bear. Clothes Cabin has removed as many barriers to these services as possible, desiring to help all people in need. In 2015, we served more than 1,800 families, with 60% of those served being children.
