Donate to the Clothing Closet

The Clothing Closet at Iowa also accepts monetary donations in the form of cash or check (make payable to "Clothing Closet at Iowa"). Donations can be accepted at the office of the Dean of Students in 135 IMU.

Professional attire in good condition, including shoes and accessories, can be donated at the IMU House Hotel front desk any time during open hours.

So often, professional clothes can be inaccessible and super expensive to students on a college budget … we’re hoping to knock down those barriers to success.”
