The Amphi Clothing Bank was founded almost 40 ago by teachers to lend dignity to families in need by providing quality used clothing in a clean and caring environment. Learn more here: https://youtu.be/SHza16wipWQ
Where is it located? 3335 N. Stone Avenue (behind Amphi High School)
When is it open? Students and families can visit each Tuesdays and Wednesdays 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.
How are clothing items and resources distributed? Families are encouraged to come to the Clothing Bank on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, or call the Amphi Foundation office if they need to make an appointment outside of these hours. Parents can also work with their school’s health office, social worker or other student advocate to send a request to the Clothing Bank volunteers for specific items. Volunteers will fill the order and send items to the school for distribution to the student(s) in need. All resources from our Clothing Bank are provided to students at no cost.
What types of resources does the Clothing Bank provide to students, and/or accept as donations? We provide clean, gently-used or new clothing for students of all sizes, preschool – high school. We also offer shoes, jackets, and accessories such as backpacks or lunch boxes, as well as hygiene supplies. Donations of all kinds are needed, with the greatest needs being pants sizes 5-14, shoes, new socks and underwear, and jackets or coats, as well as cash donations.
Where can I drop off donations? Every Amphi school office serves as a drop off point for Clothing Bank donations. Please let the office staff know that you are donating your items to the Clothing Bank and our Amphi facilities will pick up items and deliver to us. Donations can also be made at the Clothing Bank on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. during the school year.
How can I help the Clothing Bank?
Cash donations are always appreciated to help with the operation of the Clothing Bank. Bulk purchases of new underwear and laundry supplies are made several times per year and there are expenses associated with keeping the facility up and running. You can donate online or contact us at [email protected].
Volunteer! We are in need of volunteers to help accept, sort & wash donations, fill orders for schools, and to hold “open house” shopping events for families. If you have time to share, please contact the Amphi Foundation at 520.696.5147 or [email protected].
Organize a donation drive at your company, church or school. The Clothing Bank is always in need of new socks & underwear in children’s sizes—ask your employees, friends, or congregation to bring a package to donate at your next event! We are so thankful to our community partners who organize drives to collect necessary Clothing Bank items several times a year.
