MIT Women's League

Clothing Service Program

The Clothing Service Program is the League's effort to ease the strain on international student clothing budgets. Many foreign undergraduates arrive on campus unprepared for a New England winter or for the job interviews they may have later in the year.

To help reduce the need for these students to purchase costly sweaters, winter coats, interview dresses, suits and neckties, the League collects donated clothing throughout the year. And each fall it hosts a "Fall Fashion Free For All," at which delighted students can select needed items for their wardrobes at no cost. Volunteers serve as "fashion consultants" to students during the event itself.

The League seeks clean, gently used interview clothes, warm winter-appropriate outerwear, and formal wear for spring proms. Clothing donations may be mailed or brought to the League office (Room 10-342). Donations are tax deductible and a receipt for income tax purposes is provided upon request. A valuation guide is available at the Salvation Army website.

Volunteers interested in assisting with sorting and tagging donations or helping with the "Fall Fashion Free For All" should call the League office at 617.253.3656 or email
