Clothing, Laundry, and Mending

Clothes Closets & Thrift Stores

Passing clothes on to the next generation or to other  folks in need is a very common and long standing practice in humanity.  Not wanting things that are in "perfectly good condition" is a natural practice of "not wanting things to go to waste" type of thinking.

Laundry Resources

Laundering clothes serves multiple purposes.  Helping those most in need with laundry service serves as much as an aesthetic, or an emotional and psychological support, as much as a practical one.  The seemingly "small things" really to matter a great deal!

Mending Resources

Again, mending clothes and the like is an obvious need and practice for things that have "plenty of life left in them."  Mending and laundering things is simple common sense for most of us.

Clothing Forum

 Clothing, Laundry & Mending Resources has a dedicated forum is for News, Information and Discussion about clothing resources in Minnesota.  This is where the whole community is invited to participate with few exceptions.  Those using these these community services are especially encouraged to register with a user name and an email.  We will offer help to those not tech savvy when staff or a volunteer is available to do so.
