Monetary Donations

We can serve a significant number of students with the clothing donations we receive, but that limits us solely on the items given to us. In order for Professional Clothing Studio to meet the rising needs of our students, at times we may need to purchase clothing to fill in the gaps between what clothes are donated and what clothes are needed. Any financial assistance is welcome and very much appreciated! If you would like to contribute to the closet financially, please click on the link below. Under “Designation,” select ”Professional Clothing Studio.”
