Since 1972, the Interfaith Works Clothing Center (IWCC) has been helping Montgomery County low-income families by providing them with clothing and home goods at no charge. This enables them to focus their resources on food, rent, utilities, medicine, school supplies and other basic needs. Through this program, we provide the link between neighbors who have things they no longer need with neighbors who use these items to provide for their basic needs.
