Each January the Office of Community and Regional Affairs conducts a clothing drive to benefit Dress for Success, Home Front’s Suitably Dressed, and UIH’s Operation Fatherhood, all Mercer County organizations that collect “gently used” business attire for men and women.
The clothing go 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, used eye glasses, and other accessories.

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 www.gladdogsnation.com.
Items can be brought to 350 Alexander Street between the hours of 8 and 9 a.m. and 12:30 and 1:30 p.m., weekdays, January 29 through February 5.
