MARTHA’S OUTFITTERS

Martha’s Outfitters is an innovative community store focused on supporting families with young children in the crucial early years of a child’s life. Outfitters patrons shop at no cost through a monthly credit program. To be eligible for the program, patrons must show that they support a young child (infant – 8 years old).

Offerings available to our patrons range from diapers and baby bottles for infants to business attire for parents and caregivers. Martha’s Outfitters’ mission is to support strong families by providing access to baby items and clothing necessary at home and in the workplace.

As a community store, Martha’s Outfitters relies on the contributions of donors and volunteers to make sure shoppers have access to the clothing needed to build strong families. Whether you are visiting the area, donating or shopping, we welcome you to stop by and see us!
