A hand up clothing room

A Hand Up clothing room offers people in need of clothing a place to shop with dignity at no cost. You can find us at 31 Frederick Street, upstairs in the Connection Centre.

We are thankful to our donors for the quality garments they supply us with that allows us to supplement the clothing needs of many people in our community.

We offer clothing to men, women, youth, children and infants. There is something for everyone. 

Often, clients come by just to say hi and catch up on the week. We welcome and encourage this!  There is always fresh coffee, delicious snacks, a warm smile and listening ears


Monday and Wednesday 1-3pm

     Fridays 6-8pm


If you are interested in donating clothing, please be sure that the articles are washed and gently used before dropping them off.  

We do NOT accept toys, books or household items, we are not equipped for those, clothes, shoes and bedding only.  Please see the Resource Thrift store, or other thrift stores for those donations. 

You can deliver clothing during A Hand Up's regular hours at 31 Frederick Street

Mondays 1-3pm, Wednesdays 1-3pm or Fridays 6-8  

One of our volunteers will be outside and can receive the clothes from you

and bring them inside without you needing to enter the facility.

**Please do not leave bags of clothing outside the doors if the building is closed, they end up being ruined.


Thank you for your help with this.**


To use the Clothing Room, one simply has to be referred by an individual or agency. 

Currently all of our local churches, local social service agencies (CAS, CAPC, Canadian Mental Health, Early Years, Centre, New Path etc) food bank and Town of Bradford, have referral cards.

You will be able to access the room on a weekly basis with limits of items per family members. Should you need to contact us regarding referring someone to A Hand Up, please call Patti at: 416-697-0147 or email us at: ahandup@ctministries.ca
