A Hand Up Clothing Room

A Hand Up clothing room offers people in need of clothing a place to shop with dignity at no cost. 

You can find us at 31 Frederick Street, upstairs above the Out of the Cold Cafe.

We are thankful to our donors for the quality garments they supply us with that allow us to supplement the clothing needs of many people in our community.  We serve 700 families in the South Simcoe region each year.

We offer clothing to men, women, youth, children and infants. There is something for everyone. 


Monday 1-3pm

Wednesday 1-3pm

Fridays 6-8pm


As we prepare to move to our new location we are no longer accepting donations as we cannot manage them and the move at the same time.  

We apologize for the inconvenience, as soon as we are renovated and able to begin donations again we will let you know.

In the mean time you can take donations to the Resource Thrift Store on Holland Street who are one of our financial supporters for the Clothing Room.

For Future when we re-open:

If you are interested in donating clothing, please be sure that the articles are washed and gently used before dropping them off.  

We do NOT accept toys, books or household items, we are not equipped for those, clothes, shoes and bedding only.  

(Please see the Resource Thrift store, or other thrift stores for those donations)

You can deliver clothing during A Hand Up's regular hours at 31 Frederick Street

Mondays 1-3pm, Wednesdays 1-3pm or Fridays 6-8  

One of our volunteers will be outside and can receive the clothes from you

and bring them inside without you needing to enter the facility.

**Please do not leave bags of clothing outside the doors if the building is closed, they end up being ruined.


Thank you for your help with this.**
