The Clothing Connection is a resource full of new and gently used clothing for students.
Winter term: The Clothing Connection is open from January 13 - March 17, 2023
It is free resource available to all COCC and OSU-Cascades students. Students are welcome to visit once-a-term, and take up to 10 items for free!
The Clothing Connection is a partnership between COCC and OSU-Cascades. The intent is to help students dress for school, work, field placements, interviews and internships. Gently used and new clothing items have been donated from faculty members, staff, community supporters and local businesses. Students are welcome to come and choose up to 10 items every term to supplement their wardrobe. The Clothing Connection is also open to staff and faculty.
HOW IT WORKS
The Clothing Connection is open on the Bend Campus every Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. and is staffed with a crew of volunteers eager to help students find sizes and coordinate outfits. Students are welcome to try things on as there is a dressing room available. The Redmond Campus has racks of clothing available to students in the RTEC building - 2nd floor. A QR code to a request form is available for students to submit requests if they are unable to access either of these in-person options. When volunteers receive requests they fill bags of items and can send them out to any campus for pick up.
