There are no stores that advertise free clothes giveaways in Los Angeles, but there are agencies that provide clothing and take donations in the area. Needhelppayingbills.com provides a list of charities and social service agencies, and the National Council of Jewish Women hosts an annual clothing giveaway.
Need Help Paying Bills provides a directory of clothing closets for families and single people who are in need of help and may be eligible to receive free clothing. Agencies and charities on this list distribute donated items such as clothing, blankets, coats, work uniforms and some household items to clothing banks or closets and thrift stores.
Some of the organizations listed also provide additional services based on district, immigration status, whether or not there are children in the home, income, housing status and health care coverage. Several of the organizations are open to receiving donations from the general public and distribute them directly to those in need.
The National Council of Jewish Women hosts an annual clothing giveaway, usually in December. During the clothing giveaway event, they partner with 20 social services agencies and provide free clothing vouchers to representatives of the agencies. The organization operates a Council Thrift Shop and Donation Center, which is open and actively takes donations throughout the year.
