The Clothing Shop

The Clothing Shop provides free clothing to anyone in need within the McLean Bible Church family and the community.

Men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and shoes are available, and anyone with a need for clothing may receive clothing. There are no economic qualifications, but a valid ID is requested. 

Each adult, 16 and older, may come one time per month and fill a bag (provided) with clothes of their choosing. 

Location

The Clothing Shop is located in room 1612 of the Tysons campus. On Thursdays, enter through the lower main entrance (Door 1B); turn right and enter Community Room A. Look for the Clothing Shop sign. On Saturdays we meet in room 1605 (just past the coffee bar) for registration and a devotional. Volunteers will escort you to the shopping area after the devotional.  Each adult, 16 and older, may come one time per month and fill a bag (provided) with clothes of their choosing.  No registration after message has begun.  Children must be supervised by parents.  

Hours of Operation

Thursday Evenings:

6 pm:  Registration begins (Community Room A).
6:45pm:  Required Devotional Service begins (Community Room A). 
7:30 pm:  Shopping begins in groups of 25 people.

Shoppers must be registered by the start of the Devotional Service.

1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month:

8 am:  Registration begins (Room 1605).
9 am: Required Devotional Service begins (Room 1605).
9:30 am:  Shopping begins in groups of 25 people. 

Shoppers must be registered by the start of the Devotional Service.

PLEASE NOTE:

We no longer use a number system for registration.  Each person is given a color at time of registration. Groups of 25 are called by color. The first person in the registration line will NOT be the first shopper in most cases.  Arrival prior to 6 pm does not guarantee an early shopper position.

The Clothing Shop will be closed if a scheduled date coincides with a federal holiday or the federal government has declared an Inclement Weather Day. The Clothing Shop will be closed on the following dates:

  • Saturday, March 4, 2017
  • Saturday, April 15, 2017
  • Saturday, October 21, 2017

Three other events of the Clothing Shop require advance registration and serve the church and the community.

Our annual Backpack Giveaway takes place in the month of August.
Our annual Turkey Box Outreach takes place on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
Our annual Christmas Shop Gift event takes place in the month of December.

What to Donate

We welcome all types of gently used clothing, coats and shoes for men, women and children. We also need new packaged underwear and athletic socks.  The greatest ongoing needs are men's jeans and khakis, sizes 28 - 34, maternity clothes, and children’s jeans. During the winter, we need winter coats.

We accept household items in good condition, including bed linens, towels and dishes, utensils and cookware. 

WE DO NOT ACCEPT OLD TV'S, COMPUTERS MADE BEFORE 2008, FURNITURE OR APPLIANCES.

How to Donate

Kindly follow these four steps to help make our volunteers’ jobs as easy as possible:

  • All donations must be in good condition and freshly washed or dry-cleaned.
  • Package items in small to medium sized trash bags so our volunteers may easily lift them. Close bags to avoid spilling.
  • Donations may be placed INSIDE the cottage building, located in the church's lower-level parking garage, across from the Smith Center entrance, 24 hours a day.
  • Please push the bags through the openings of the cottage. DO NOT PLACE BAGS IN THE AREA IN FRONT OF THE COTTAGE, as they may get wet and be unusable.

Receipts

Donations are tax-deductible. Receipts are located in a box on the side of the donation cottage or in the Clothing Shop when it is open. You may also visit the church office weekdays from 8 AM - 5 PM for a receipt from the receptionist.
