What to Expect
at the Clothing Center
Numbers are given out on
Wednesdays from 8:30 AM until 10:30 AM
Select Thursdays from 4:30 PM to 6 PM
Select Sundays from 1 PM to 2:30 PM
on a first come first serve basis. “Saving places” in line is discouraged. No numbers will be given out after the end time listed above. At the time numbers are given, you will be asked if you brought your referral form and proper paper work. We don’t want you waiting in line if you don’t have what you need. Often when that happens, a client will run home to get what they need and return to get a number.
You will be called by number to meet with an interviewer. The interviewer will verify your referral form information and review your children’s sizes.
Orders are filled by Christ Child volunteers in each department. Once they are ready, you will be given a wagon to move between the different clothing departments and pick up your family’s order. We encourage you to look at the sizes to see if they will fit, and if your child is there, have them try on their coats and shoes so that exchanges for size can be made right then.
Once you have received all clothing/shoes, you may choose a book for each child, and your order will be verified by a Christ Child volunteer. We provide a drive up service for loading your bags, so you don’t need to juggle bags and children through the parking lot.
