Make a Difference

Are you looking for ways to help your community?

Clothes Cabin assists nearly 2,000 families a year with free clothing and household linens. The vast majority of our support comes from people like you. Whether you’re an individual, a family, a group or business, you can get involved!

We always love when our supporters…

  • Donate time
  • Donate clothes
  • Donate money
But there are many other fun ways to help!
Here are some ways others are contributing.

Become an Ambassador

  • Call us when you see great bargains at local stores so we can send someone to buy items for our clients
  • Collect donations from people in your area who are unable to deliver them personally
  • Talk to your friends and groups about our mission
  • Use your social media to promote Clothes Cabin and Friends Resale Boutique

Shop Friends Resale Boutique

Our resale boutique supports the mission of Clothes Cabin. Stop in and you’ll discover reasonable prices, beautiful jewelry, designer purses, vintage collectibles, decorative art, and more! You can shop with good conscience in knowing that 100% of the proceeds from the boutique go towards the fulfillment of Clothes Cabin’s mission.

Sponsor a Giving Tree

Make themed tags that specify an item someone could buy, and arrange them on a Giving Tree. Your group members will select one or more tags and purchase those items. It could be basics like socks and underwear, or other needs such as sheets, towels, hygiene items, or school supplies. Contact us for ideas.

Sponsor a Caring Tree

Make hygiene kits or baby packs

Collect personal hygiene items like shampoo, soap, razors, toothbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, lotions, and deodorant and assemble individual or family-sized hygiene kits. Baby packs can include a bib, washcloth, socks, diaper, lotion, toy… whatever you think a baby might use. This is an ideal project for younger children and teaches them the importance of community service.

Organize a clothing or shoe drive

VolunteerIt’s easy to hold a drive for new or gently used items that are greatly needed. You can call us for ideas but children’s school aged clothes, school uniforms, towels, sheets and athletic shoes are always a safe bet.

Party with a Purpose!

Tired of the white elephant exchange? Ask co-workers to donate items like pajamas or blankets or athletic shoes instead of having a gift exchange at your next office party. Allow your children to give back by inviting their guests to bring a package of socks or underwear instead of a birthday gift.

Hold your group’s next meeting at Clothes Cabin

fun-raiser_webWe are happy to host a meeting for your book club, church group, or women’s organization so your friends can see Clothes Cabin and how it works. We’ll provide light refreshments, a tour, and a chance to shop at Friends Resale Boutique.

Have a Fun-Raiser!

Groups can raise money while having fun with a fashion show, silent auction, ice cream social, bowl-a-rama, yard sale…anything goes!

Host a Shower

Host a ShowerThis women’s club held a linen shower and collected a room full of sheets, towels, blankets, comforter sets, and pillows! Invite your friends and host a shower for Clothes Cabin. It could also be a baby shower, a lingerie shower, or a BYOB (Bring Your Old Bra)!


One Small Step, Inc. is an Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization for a tax credit, so your cash donation will return to you dollar-for-dollar. Clothing donations are tax deductible. We always need new or gently used:

  • Children’s clothes, sizes 5 – 16
  • New socks and underwear
  • Athletic shoes
  • Sheets, towels, and blankets


Volunteer two or more hours a week at Clothes Cabin or Friends Resale Boutique and you’ll be part of our dedicated team!
