Women Helping Women

WHW Closet Remodel Cropped

Women Helping Women is a project in which Junior League volunteers collect, prepare, and distribute donated professional women’s clothing. These clothes are given to women entering the workforce and who are in transition towards self-sufficiency. Clients are referred to the project by government and social service agencies. Women Helping Women has served over 17,000 women since 1996.

We are accepting donations of:

  • professional clothing
  • shoes
  • bags and accessories
  • toiletries (new only)

Remove all hangers. We do not accept them.
Donations MUST be bagged and dropped off in the bins just outside our front doors.
Please don’t worry about wrinkles. We ensure all the items look their best when they’re put out on the boutique floor.

The Junior League of Salt Lake City’s Women Helping Women Boutique reopened on June 5th, 2021.

We are excited to get back to providing this much-needed service to our community!
