Seniors Support Services: Emergency Food and Clothing

Clothing Services

Buying clothing on a low income is a challenge but can be done.

  • Shop carefully and take advantage of sales.
  • Shop in the bargain stores and check out garage sales and the Salvation Army Thrift Store.
  • If you have clothes your children have outgrown, try swapping them with your friends for other sizes.
  • Take care of your clothes; follow washing instructions and repair them as they need it (a stitch in time saves nine!).
  • Similarly, keep your shoes clean and repaired and they will last a long time.
