Clothing Donations

Thank you for offering Clothing Donations! The mission of Cajun Navy Relief is to offer rescue and relief immediately after natural disaster. Our organization does not have the capacity to sort and store clothing, and it is also difficult to store and sort clothing in emergency shelters. We recommend contacting national organizations that distribute clothing such as Goodwill and Salvation Army. They have the capacity to sort and store clothing and often create systems for evacuees to access free clothing.
