Who is eligible?
Amphitheater students K – 12 and their parents, siblings and other family members living in the home, including grandparents, who are qualified and referred by their schools’ health services department.
How are clothing and other items distributed?
Each student and family member may select up to five outfits: girls and women – dresses, suits, and separates (blouses, skirts, pants); boys and men – suits, jackets, shirts and pants. They can also add pajamas, nightgowns, bathrobes, coats, shoes and accessories. Each student is provided with new socks and underwear.
Household items we carry may include: towels, sheets, and blankets; dinnerware, glassware and flatware; cookware, kitchen supplies and appliances; household appliances; baby equipment and toys.
What does the Clothing Bank need?
We accept infantwear; children’s clothing, boys and girls, all ages but especially sizes 6 – 14; new children’s socks and underwear, throughout the year but especially November and March; and adult clothing.
We also appreciate donations of small household items and bed and bath linens, and are in special need of blankets.
Money: your contribution supports our operations and buys brand new boys’ and girls’ socks and underwear, all ages, and other personal items, such as toiletries.
Each year, our all-volunteer staff collects and sorts more then 40,000 articles of clothing, and items that need laundering are cleaned on site. As a result, thousands of Amphitheater students have left the Clothing Bank ready to go to school, dressed for success!
Volunteers help take in, sort, and launder clothing donations, keep the hanging racks and shelves organized, and assist students and their families. We also appreciate help with grounds keeping, building maintenance, and odd jobs.
Where are drop-off locations?
Items may be dropped off at the administrative office of any Amphi school to be picked up and delivered to the Amphi Clothing Bank. Please make sure clothing is clean and household items are in good working order, and place all items in plastic bags. Call ahead for receiving hours before dropping off donations at the Clothing Bank.
