WHITE PONY GENERAL STORE
With help from our community, we have distributed over 650,000 items of clothing, toys & books!
The White Pony General Store (WPGS) distributes new and like-new clothing, shoes, toys, children’s books, and games to our Contra Costa neighbors in need. WPGS 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 is our Mobile Boutiques, where a crew of dozens of volunteers creates a special store-like shopping experience right in the heart of communities most in need. Often our Mobile boutiques will also involve mobile grocery distributions as well.
The WPGS team promotes economic independence and uplifts lives by helping recipients with presentable interview and on the job attire. Between Boutique events and seasonally, we also partner 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.
"At WPE we don’t see red tape – we see a need and we respond with love by giving what is needed. It is so simple you would think everyone would be doing it. I believe one day everyone will be doing it."
– Eve Birge, WPE Executive Director
