Sometimes the simple things bring the most pleasure. And while it may sound silly, few things feel as good as putting on a brand new dry pair of socks – especially if you have been out in the rain all day. Well socks are just the tip of the iceberg. The Calgary Drop-In Centre has an entire facility dedicated to providing free clothing for our clients.
Stocked entirely by the kindness of community donations, our Clothing Store gathers those donations, sorts them, labels them when necessary, and presents them in a free ‘store’ available to our clients. Whether it is work clothes for a construction site or the office, a suit for a job interview, or a new set of underwear, the Clothing Store has everything anyone could need.

I am pretty impressed with the service provided by ESS especially when I consider the various circumstances beyond your control that you may have to contend with! It is a huge relief to NOT spend my time completing a bunch of forms every time I need casual labour or spend my money paying an employment service; I could not afford to do that!
What is really amazing to me is that is every bit as effective, and even more efficient in providing casual labour than the employment services that charge!
