Donate Clothing


We accept new and gently used clothing and accessories. Interview and work appropriate items support our suiting program, helping women get a job and be successful in the workplace.

Designer, dress, and casual items are sold at Portaluca with all proceeds going to support the programs and services offered by Dress for Success Cincinnati. 

Our biggest needs at this time are scrubs, handbags and other accessories.
