The Plymouth-Canton Community Schools Clothing Bank provides FREE clothing to families in need. Our goal is to provide the needy children in our school district with clothing that is similar to the apparel of their peers at school.
The P-CCS Clothing Bank has served the community since 1976. It was started by school board member, Flossie Tonda, and administered by the Plymouth Community PTO Council. It is now managed by volunteers with support through the the Education Excellence Foundation and tax deductible donations by community members.
Who is eligible to receive clothing?
Families and individuals in the community demonstrating financial need are eligible for free clothing.
Students and families can be referred by any school staff member. Members of the community can be referred by a local agency such as the Salvation Army, United Way, a church or other agencies that deal with human welfare services. Clients with referrals must make an appointment by calling the Clothing Bank telephone number (734) 416-6179. They do not take “drop-in: clients.
