Donate Clothing

“The Tenderloin is a community, overflowing with people, but also love, compassion, kindness, optimism, hope, and beauty. It is a place of hardship, but from that hardship has grown strong, passionate people."

Donate Clothing

We are happy to announce that the Free Clothing Program will be moving to our new building located at 121 Golden Gate Ave. As of February 3rd, 2015, we will be on the 2nd floor above the new Dining Room and next to the new Social Work Center. It is our hope that centralizing our services will greatly improve our guests’ experience here at St. Anthony’s thus enabling us to fully serve each and every man, woman and child who comes through our doors with immediate, accessible and responsive wrap-around services. Click here for a map to our new location.

To help us with this transition, we are asking the public to bring their clothing donations directly to 121 Golden Gate Ave. There will be a curbside donation drop off area located in the front of the building. Hours for this curbside drop off will be:

  • Monday: 8:00am-5:00pm                                                            
  • Tuesday: 8:00am-5:00pm
  • Wednesday: 8:00am-5:00pm
  • Thursday: 8:00am-5:00pm
  • Friday: 8:00am-5:00pm
  • Saturday: 9:00am-3:00pm
  • Sunday:  9:00am-3:00pm

Donations of clean, like-new clothing make this program possible. We welcome your individual donations. Please also consider sponsoring your own clothing drive. Click here for a guide and materials to make your clothing drive a success.

Pickup service is available for donations of five bags or more within city limits. Please call (415) 592-2826 for more information.
