Helping Women and Children in Crisis by Distributing Clothing at No Cost.

The foundation of everything we do is to ensure women and
children receive the basics in life.

The WGB Store is filled with donated clothing, accessories, shoes and more, for both women and children. Our clients are qualified by their case managers, and are most typically living in shelters or part of a transitional program in and around the Greater Washington DC area.

Our volunteers provide personal service and uplifting interaction in a unique boutique-like atmosphere. We are able to provide compassion, and companionship in otherwise tough situations.

Many clients leave their crises with only the clothing on their backs. We are here to help them restock those basic necessities free of charge. Through generous donations we make sure these women and children have what they need to to rebuild their lives and restore their dignity. 

This increased self-esteem leads to an obvious resilience, poise and pep in their steps. They have their own checklist of to-dos and our job is to get them every step closer:

  • Secure a stable roof over their head
  • Gain and maintain employment
  • Become more financially sound to make ends meet; and then some
  • Apply their experiences and opportunities toward learning tools for their children

We watch them move up and away from the hurdles that once held them back.

Since 2016

Volunteer

On store days we need volunteers to help clients shop for clothing, restock the racks, provide childcare, check out our shoppers and overall, manage needs much like a retail department store.

Become a personal shopper, coordinate a donation drive; on or off-site (clothing, accessories, shoes, snack packs, toiletries and more!), facilitate corporate and community outreach and/or become a sort leader.

We welcome individuals, groups, families, schools/universities, businesses of any size, religious organizations, clubs and more. Children are welcome to volunteer if at least 12 and accompanied by an adult, 15 unaccompanied.

What an INCREDIBLE example to us all. For his Bar Mitzvah service project, 12-year-old Jacob Katz collected 25,200 diapers and 17,850 wipes for WGB. It was because of his efforts that we had what was needed to serve our clients this past week. See MoreSee Less
