Clothing drive and Free Clothes Shop

Have you started your spring cleaning yet? Using time to declutter your space can be beneficial for your mental health, but it can also support the community!

Taking on the charge from previous honor students Missy Gheorghiu and Kim Budde who hosted the Clothing Swap in the Fall 2022 semester, Student Life is partnering with StandOUT and a current Honors Capstone students to host this event again.

We want to welcome all faculty, staff, and students to bring in their gently used and cleaned clothes of all sizes to the Student Life office next week starting Monday April 3, 2023. We will also be accepting donations of new undergarments such as bras and underwear.

This is an event we are excited to host. Our students believe events like this play an important role in reducing textile waste while supporting a basic need that many community members have a difficult time accessing. 

To add to the excitement, our office will be having a soft launch to a clothing closet that will be available for students year round. Please keep your eyes peeled for more details as they come!


May be dropped off Monday, April 3 to Wednesday, April 5 from 10 AM to 5 PM at the Student Life Office.

The Free Clothes Shop (Formerly Free Clothing Swap):

Thursday, April 6 from 10 AM to 5 PM and Friday, April 7 from 10 AM to 4 PM.

The event is free for students and a clothing donation is not required to “shop”.  Snacks will be provided.

Please share this opportunity with your students!

If you have any questions or would like to get involved, feel free to reach out to me at

Thank you for your support!
