It’s never too early to clean out your closets for great fat causes! We’re currently accepting donations of gently used clothing for people of all genders, size large and up, up, up! Superfat and masculine-spectrum clothing especially appreciated.

Send an email to cupcake@bigmoves.org schedule a donation pickup, volunteer to help at the sale, or sign up to bake some goodies!

Accessibility Information: The entrance to the sale is on 28th Street, through the garden. There is a small parking lot on the side of the garden towards Telegraph Avenue, and we ask that people leave the parking spaces in the lot for people who need closer, more accessible parking. Once in the garden, there is a path down to a ramp on the left; the ramp is the main entrance to the sale and will be festooned accordingly. Inside, we’ll have some armless seats and volunteers on hand to help you shop, carry clothes, etc!

The Humanist Hall has two gender-free bathrooms, one of which is accessible but may have a sink-height issue. The shared dressing room is also gender-free.

A note about the clothing: we put the call out for donations of clean clothes but don’t wash them ourselves, so some may arrive with pet hair, scented detergents, or smoke.
