NewThreads does not make direct distributions to individuals;  rather over the years we have formed partnership with hundreds of different nonprofits that reach out to a wide variety of people in need.

We take great care in finding the most effective agencies that work closely with those they serve, not only to address their physical needs but also to provide the counseling and other support services these individuals will need to get back on their feet.

Each year we partner with at least one hundred charitable organizations, many new and some with whom we have worked in the past, ensuring our merchandise reaches those who truly need it most.
