Your donations of women’s new or nearly new clothing, shoes and accessories keep us going! Interview and work appropriate items support our StyleHER program, helping women dress to get a job and be successful in the workplace.
In order to keep everyone safe, rolling bins and racks will be on the sidewalk outside the Donation Center to place your donated items. You may place loose items and small bags or boxes in the bins or hang them on racks. Boxes and large bags that do not fit in bins may be placed against the building next to the bins and racks.
At this time, staff will not be available to help unload cars so that we may maintain the appropriate social distancing.
We are currently in need of the following:
We are NOT able to accept estates under any circumstances.
Please note that donations will not be accepted in Portaluca until further notice.
Due to construction on 4th Street, we recommend taking 3rd Street to Elm Street, then turning left onto McFarland Street. Get directions.
You may download a donation tax receipt here.
Designer, dressy and casual items are sold at our Portaluca fashion resale boutique at 209 W 4th Street in Downtown Cincinnati, which is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday. All Portaluca proceeds go to support the programs and services offered by Dress for Success Cincinnati. Click here for our Portaluca website.

Please do not bring donations on hangers.

Dress for Success Cincinnati is a volunteer-driven organization, and we simply do not have the resources or the staff to provide pickup service.
It’s a great way to give back through your company, organization or group of friends.
