What is Clothes Bank?

Clothes Bank is a 12 months (52 weeks during the period 01/06/2021 to 31/07/2022) ESC volunteering project which aims to:

✅ Create positive awareness in our community

✅ Heal the wounds in our society after the pandemic with solidarity

✅ Make solidarity effective in our community.

Within the scope of the project, we will collect the leftover clothing from our community through donations, make them ready for online sales with the help of our volunteers, deliver the income from online sales and remaining clothes to the Social Aid and Solidarity Foundation with a receipt. A total of 3 fashion shows will be organized in the malls in Eskişehir to increase donations and raise awareness on the subject. Our volunteers will wash and dry the leftover clothing, iron them, make minor repairs if any, hang them on a cloth hanger, take pictures and upload them to the application and perform online sales of the clothes through the application.

Don’t throw it away, give it a new way!
