Join fellow alumni as we look to give back to the San Francisco community. St. Anthony’s has been serving San Francisco in so many ways since 1950, from meals to addition recovery to clothing to medicine. Register here.
Help us serve San Francisco in a small way by volunteering with us at St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program. We have 15 spots available for our day. The commitment is 3 hours (our shift is 1-4pm). The teamwork and collaboration of group volunteers helps St. Anthony's sort, quality check, hang clothing, and assist guests in the shopping experience. We look forward to serving with you!
All alumni are welcome to sign up to volunteer.
About St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program
St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program is San Francisco’s largest free clothing program, providing warm clothes, interview apparel or workwear, and children’s clothing to homeless and low-income families and individuals. The Free Clothing Program at a glance:
More than $3,000,000 in clothing donations from individuals and corporate partners per year and nearly 1,200 volunteer hours each month
36,000 pieces of new and like-new clothing distributed for free to nearly 10,000 guests each year (including more than 2,500 children)
The average family spends $700 per child on clothing each year (USDA, 2014); the majority of families have two or three children, which can mean spending $2,100 each year. For low-income or single parents struggling to pay rent while covering healthcare costs and other critical bills, a clothing budget may be nonexistent.
