Community Donation – Fresh Clean Threads

United Way of Lancaster County has received an unprecedented donation from Fresh Clean Threads, facilitated by AMS Fulfillment. This generous contribution, consisting of 17,000 pounds of high-quality clothing, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, and pants, is the largest in our organization’s history.

Recognizing the exceptional nature of this donation, we aim to distribute it widely across Lancaster County. Nonprofit organizations, school districts, and any other partners providing direct services to our neighbors will benefit from this significant donation.

Direct service organizations must click the button below to schedule a pickup time. Currently, scheduling is available for January 2nd through January 5th in two-hour blocks (9-11, 11-1, 1-3), accommodating up to 6 organizations per time slot. To facilitate a smooth process, we kindly request that organizations sign up at least 2 hours in advance so that we can appropriately label and prepare the boxes for pickup. If you have any questions, please email Julie Kennedy, Associate Director of Community Initiatives at

We want to address complex community issues by investing in the basic building blocks that every person – and every community – need to thrive:

Education, Economic Mobility, Health and Well-being, and Basic/Emerging needs.

We aim to serve individuals who are historically or currently marginalized, and may be suffering from systemic inequities that impede their ability to reach and maintain financial independence through family-sustaining employment.

We seek to accelerate proven and innovative solutions via focused Level Up & Launch grants. These grants are made possible by the donations of thousands of community investors each year, and United Way is committed to serving as a strategic steward of these dollars. And we contribute further to the work – grantees will receive support through the connections and opportunities we bring, including volunteers and other resources to aid in their success.

Highlighting reports/gaps 

We provide a snapshot of our community through the various ways that we collect data as an organization. We conduct assessments, publish data reporting, and provide data collection tools so that you can have a pulse on what our community is currently doing and what is still needed.

"United Way of Lancaster County is working hard to expand partnerships and leverage resources through grants that benefit our community."
