Donating Clothing

Charitable Union helps families and veterans in Battle Creek by providing free clothing, work shoes and household items to those in need. Even a small donation makes a big difference in the lives of many. Please consider donating any clothes, shoes or household items you don’t have a use for anymore and we’ll make sure they end up in good hands.

As the seasons change, our need for back-to-school clothes continues to grow. If you have clothing items from last year that don’t fit your kids anymore, we’d love to be able to pass those items on to kids who would love to wear them.

Donate Children's Clothing

Each month a client may shop for appropriate clothing for their growing children. In August we offer back-to-school clothing for children. Your donation can help a young child grow in self-esteem. Clothing appropriate for both school and play are needed. Such as:

  • Underwear briefs for girls and boxers for boys
  • Socks
  • Jeans - All sizes for both boys and girls
  • Shorts - All sizes for both boys and girls
  • Shirts, blouses and T-shirts
  • Skirts and dresses
  • Winter coats and snowpants
  • Mittens, hats and gloves
  • Shoes and boots

Donate Clothing for Babies


Donate Men's Clothing

One of the more challenging areas of our client store is keeping the men's clothing stocked. From work clothes to dress suits there always seems to to be little from which to choose. Our greatest needs are new or gently used:

  • Jean's - all sizes, but especially smaller and larger sized men's jeans

  • Shirts and T-shirts - both casual and dress

  • Underwear and socks

  • Sweatshirts and hoodies

  • Winter coats, hats and gloves

  • Shoes and boots


    Donate Women's Career and Maternity Clothing

    While we normally have sufficient women's clothing to help those in need, there are some areas where help is often needed: career style clothing, Women's Plus sized clothing, maternity clothes and nursing scrubs are always in demand.

    We will always happily accept whatever clothing donations you can share. Areas where we need the greatest help in women's clothing are new or gently used:

    • Jean's - all sizes, but especially larger sized women's jeans

    • Shirts and T-shirts - both casual and dress

    • Underwear, bras and socks

    • Sweatshirts and hoodies

    • Dresses suitable for Prom and Wedding celebrations

    • Winter coats, hats and gloves

    • Shoes and boots
