Give unemployment the boot! Working Gear assists low-income unemployed individuals re-entering the workforce by providing work appropriate clothing and gear at no cost. Our clients are seeking jobs in a wide range of industries and we provide them with everything from boots to suits.
Our clients are currently unemployed, ready to work, and are referred through community agencies assisting the unemployed. Many have been unemployed for long periods and cannot afford the clothing needed to find a job. We provide them with free good quality used or new clothing and gear, from construction clothing and steel-toed boots to casual attire and suits.
Working Gear is a registered charitable non-profit society. We are primarily run by volunteers and have been operating in Vancouver, B.C. since 2007. We accept donations of work appropriate clothing and footwear or cash. All donations go directly to supporting our work and we rely on volunteers to provide our services. Together we can give unemployment the boot!
