About the Clothing Shop
The clothing shop is a service that allows residents to “shop” for clothes and shoes based on an allocated points system. Each cycle, residents are given an appointment to shop for both themselves and their families. The shop operates 5 days per week (Monday to Friday), from 11:00 AM to 3:00PM. Volunteers assist with the preparation (restocking, folding, organizing), appointments (finding items, checking out) and overall cleanliness and maintenance of the shop.
