A community of volunteers
CHiPS depends on our loyal and hardworking volunteers to provide our clients with daily meals and other services. Did you know 75% of our work is done by volunteers? That’s one of the reasons why overhead costs at CHiPS are relatively low and the bulk of donated funds goes towards providing for our clients.
CHiPS always needs seasonal clothing for men and women. Used clothing in good condition and new items are welcome.
You can help by donating clothing or volunteering your time in sorting, hanging, and arranging donated garments.
We accept clothes Monday & Tuesday from 8:30 A.M. to 1:30 P.M., except during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our drop-off center is located at CHiPS, 200 Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn, between Sackett St. and Degraw. Please only bring clothes that will be wearable in the next few months (no shorts in winter, please!) — we have no storage space for clothing, and items will be given to guests shortly after we receive them.
We always need the following for men and women:
- New infant cloths.
- coats, jackets
- socks, sneakers, boots, and practical shoes
