ReThreads operates by appointment only. Call or email to set up a time to visit us!
We believe the feeling of "home sweet home" should be within reach for all. ReThreads endeavors to meet the basic human needs of local community members by providing free clothing and other essential items to those struggling to afford the purchase of these necessities.
How does Rethreads meet needs?
Every human being has the right to warm clothes, and ReThreads strives to guarantee that right. Whether it is a warm, winter coat or a new outfit for a job interview, ReThreads meets the needs of women, men, and children; anyone in need is welcome to visit ReThreads once per month. Annually, Rethreads gives out over 55,000 items.
Why do we need ReThreads?
For many individuals and families experiencing poverty, the option to buy new kitchenware or winter clothes does not exist. Seemingly simple items like a saucepan or a winter coat do not make the cut when dire financial decisions must be made. At the same time, it is these simple items many of us take for granted even though they often make up an individual or family’s livelihood. A set of dishes or a warm sweater can make all the difference in building someone up and moving them towards their greatest potential. Rethreads meets needs by providing people access to basic necessities, enabling them to have their needs met without having to choose between one item over another. If an item is not currently at ReThreads, inviduals are offered vouchers to “shop” at La Puente’s Rainbow’s End Alamosa Thrift Store; this provides a wider platform in which people can find what they are looking for to have their needs met.
