Our CD One Price Clothing Drive Returns

Cara Collective is pleased to announce we are once again partnering with our friends at CD One Price Cleaners for its annual clothing drive. From March 18 – March 30, you can drop off gently used business professional and business-casual attire including button down shirts, blouses, dresses, jackets, pants, pantsuits, blazers and skirts to your local CD One Price Cleaners. Clothes will be cleaned, pressed, and delivered to Cara Collective, which will go directly to our job seekers. This is the largest annual clothing drive for Cara Collective and brings in thousands of pieces of clothing thanks to the generosity of donors.
