The Fort Wayne Community Schools Clothing Bank provides clothing to thousands of students each year. FWCS students receive clothes, shoes, coats, toiletries and other items as needed because of poverty or homelessness or following a disaster, such as a flood or fire. Students are referred to the clothing bank by a case manager or counselor at their school.
The Clothing Bank is located on 1511 Catalpa St., Door #26. The Clothing Bank operates with the support of cash donations and donations of new and gently used clothing. See below for items needed. Any used clothing should be in good condition and suitable for students. The clothing bank is staffed from 10 am - 3 pm Monday through Friday.
