Clothing Donations

The Clothesline accepts donations of new or like-new clothing, bedding, hygiene products, tents, and suitcases/backpacks to be distributed to the community.

For our customers, only donate clothing that is clean and in good condition. If you have clothing to donate that is not ready-to-wear, find your closest Goodwill donation site here.

Please call ahead if you have more than one car load to donate (206-932-9023) and bag your donations in garbage/plastic bags that can be tied closed. This helps us process donations safely during COVID-19. Thank you!

We accept donations any time during open hours, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and the first Saturday of each month from 10am – 1pm. No appointment is necessary to drop off donations. Please note that any donations left outside these hours or overnight will be thrown away.
