Clothes for Jail Ministry


Jail Ministry is taking up a collection for the Onondaga County Justice Center to provide clothes for people coming out of the Justice Center. Many inmates leaving may need different clothing than what they wore when they were arrested, due to seasons changing or their weight changes or damage to those clothes.  It is important for folks to have a decent set of clothes when they are released from the Justice Center so they feel like it is a fresh start.

Jail Ministry will take new and slightly used clothing. If you focus on one item and brought a bag of them in that would be great. If you are going to do more than one item, please put different items in different bags. We will collect items through October 2.

The need is for men’s and women’s clothes, and any donation helps. Items needed are

  • Socks
  • T-shirts, short sleeve and long sleeve
  • Sweatpants and sweat tops
  • Jeans
  • Flannel shirts
  • Fall and winter jackets
  • Sneakers and boots
  • New undergarments
  • Winter hats and winter gloves

Drop your donations off in the bins at the back of the Sanctuary.
