Distributed over 500,000 items of

clothing, toys & Books!

The WPE Free General Store (FGS) distributes new and like new clothing, shoes, toys, children’s books and games to our Contra Costa neighbors in need. FGS partners with local businesses, clothing retailers and individual donors to sort, organize and deliver high quality goods free of charge.

 

One of WPE’s most celebrated distribution events are our Mobile Boutiques, where a crew of dozens of volunteers create a special store-like shopping experience right in the heart of communities most in need. Often our Mobile boutiques will also involved mobile grocery distributions as well. 

The FGS team promotes economic independence and uplifts lives by helping recipients with presentable interview and on the job attire. Between Boutique events and seasonally, FGS also partners with community warming centers to distribute potentially life-saving cold weather clothing and goods to our neighbors without shelter via our Cold Weather Clothing Program.

Providing high quality clothing in a respectful, loving environment helps our neighbors move from the margins to the mainstream of life.”
