Urban Threads - Clothing Distribution Center
Urban Threads Clothing Distribution Center serves children connected to social services in Milwaukee county, and has expanded to serve all ages. Urban Threads offers brand new clothing, blankets, shoes, coats and stuffed animals through a partnership with Threads of Hope, a Milwaukee company that links manufacturers and their valuable surplus with non-profit groups, such as LSS.
Our clothing center is stocked with name-brand clothing, with contributions from companies such as: Kohl's, Lands'End, Columbia Sportswear, and Scheels Sporting Goods. In fact, it is one of the only centers of its kind in Wisconsin that offers brand new clothing for those in need. Clothing is obtained using a voucher system. Volunteers from area churches and community organizations, along with LSS staff, sort and arrange the items in a department-store-like fashion. Then, throughout the year, clients in need are invited to shop the store free of charge. An annual Back to School Event is offered each year prior to school starting.
