CHANDLER, Ariz. -

There are many food banks in the valley that help people in need. But there are not many clothing banks for poor families. The Clothes Cabin in Chandler provides clothes for everyone from baby to grandpa.

"Men's women's children's and babies… everything they need for their families," says Caryn Shoemaker. "When clients walk in here they get a sheet and it tells them what they can buy and it varies every time they come in."

The Labrum family needs just about everything.

"It is hard to be able to buy enough diapers for her throughout the month. if we come here we know we can get diapers for her. and clothes for her, she is growing very quickly," says mom Bonnie Labrum.

60 percent of their clients need diapers and baby clothes. But there isn't enough.

"They are the ones that get the least amount of clothes for and we have high standards, everything you see here in is just going to be in prime condition," says Shoemaker.

The clothing bank started with just socks. They have expanded to dressing everyone in the family for free.

If you would like to help this nonprofit clothing bank, they need baby and children's clothes and men's clothes.
