Karmey Chesed Clothing Drives
Providing clothing for Israel's needy, with dignity.
Parents who do not have sufficient means to provide for their growing families can ill-afford proper fitting clothing for themselves or their children. Part of the solution is various Karmey Chesed clothing drives held throughout the year. At these drives large quantities of gently used clothing are collected for later distribution. These drives have proved to be the most cost effective way of providing clothing to a large number of needy families. The clothing accomplish more than merely dressing the needy families; it gives them back their dignity.
More affluent families in Israel continuously and generously donate clothing. Our volunteers must sort them, hang them, arrange them by size, and help identify the families who are in the greatest need. Those who desperately need these clothes, should not have to go through piles of clothes in garbage bags, but should receive the gifts with dignity.
