Summer Clothing & Shoes Drive for Migrant Families

June 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Summer Clothing & Shoes Drive for Migrant Families

Are you looking for ways to help support migrant families in DC? Join Catholic Charities on June 17th for a Summer Clothing and Shoes Drive!

Over the past year, thousands of migrant families have been bussed from the Southern Border to the District of Columbia. Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Washington D.C. is providing 372 families (comprised of over 1,300 people) of newly arrived migrants with basic necessities and shelter. Half of these people are children. Many families arrived in D.C. with only the clothes on their backs and very few other personal belongings.

As the seasons rapidly transition to Summer, there is an obvious need we can all help to address: access to Summer clothing and shoes.

On June 17th, from 10am-2pm at Anchor Mental Health (1001 Lawrence St NE, Washington DC 20017), Catholic Charities ADW will be hosting a Summer Clothes and Shoes Drive. Any donation of new clothing or shoes, no matter how big or small, will make a difference.

Families most need

  • Summer shoes: Crocs or flip flops,
  • t-shirts: any short-sleeved or T-shirt will work,
  • shorts: biker/athletic shorts, and
  • underwear and bras.

Below is a list of preferred clothing items and sizes that will be collected on June 17th:

Shirts Shorts Underwear Shoes
Women Sizes S-M Sizes S-L Sizes XS-L Up to size 8
Men Sizes S-L Sizes M-L Sizes S-L Sizes 10 and below
Children All sizes All sizes All sizes All sizes


There are two ways to donate:

  • Family Pack: Shop for the Drive with a family in mind. A standard “Family Pack” includes Summer clothing & shoes for 2 adults (1 women, 1 man) and 2 children (1 boy, 1 girl).
  • Mass donations: Shop for a category of clothing, such as bras or women’s bike shorts, and donate in bulk. Are you a company with an excess of branded t-shirts or gear to donate? We will gladly accept it all!

Catholic Charities is also seeking volunteers to assist on June 17th, from 9:45AM-3:00PM, to collect and organize all donations. Interested in volunteering for this event? Sign up here: Volunteer for Summer Clothing & Shoes Drive
