Used Clothing Shed

Located along the north entrance to St. Joseph the Worker, the St. Pauly clothing shed is available 24/7.  We accept the following items:

  • clothing in good condition
  • shoes and sneakers
  • belts
  • purses
  • blankets
  • sheets
  • drapes/curtains
  • pillowcases
  • clean stuffed animals

Please DO NOT leave items other than those listed above.  Unwanted articles dumped near the shed create a lot of extra work  and cost money to dispose of at the landfill.   

The St. Pauly clothing shed on our property is one of the busiest in the Portland area.  St. Pauly does not sell the clothing as other donations sites might, nor do they shred them for use as rags.  All clothing is distributed to developing countries, free of charge.  For more information on St. Pauly Clothing Shed, click here.

St. Pauly clothing donations provide five cents per pound to our Helping Hands ministry (about $1000/year), which we then use to further other causes such as BonZeb, a program that provides jobs to needy people in Haiti while at the same time promoting sustainable processing of natural materials into useable heat sources for local residents.  For more information on BonZeb, click here
