Clothing Drive

Each January the Office of Community and Regional Affairs conducts a clothing drive to benefit HomeFront's Suitably Dressed, Dress for Success, and Cornerstone Community Kitchen Clothing Store, Mercer County organizations that collect gently used business attire for men and women.

The clothing goes to men and women who are entering or re-entering the workforce, and all types of business and business casual clothing in good condition are needed. This includes suits, dress slacks, khakis, dress shirts, collared-casual shirts, blazers, skirts, sweaters, dresses, jackets, coats, ties, belts, shoes, jewelry, handbags, and other accessories. Please bring clothing on hangers.

We will also be collecting:

  • Gently used musical instruments. All instruments will support the Princeton University music outreach programs in the community.
  • Used eyeglasses to donate to Lions Club International.
  • Unwanted stuffed toys. All toys will be donated to Glad Dogs Nation, an organization that creates safe dog toys from old, unwanted children’s stuffed toys. To learn more about Glad Dogs Nation visit

The clothing drive is scheduled for February 28-March 4, 2022. Donations can be dropped off at 220 Alexander Street between 8:30-9:30 am and 12:30-1:30 pm, Monday, February 28 to Friday, March 4.
