West Seattle Helpline gets new location and more space for 'Clothesline' free clothing store By Patrick Robinson 02/07/2017 updated 1 hour ago West Seattle Helpline announced this week that they are moving to a new location at 4401 42nd Ave SW, offering more room and thus enabling more services. Executive Director Chris Lengler said, "Through a partnership with the West Seattle Christian Church, we will be moving into the first floor of what has been known as the "Ginomai Building" in the West Seattle Junction. The space is four times the size of our current location and will allow us to dramatically expand our services. It is also more accessible via public transit, has dedicated parking, and will result in an open, welcoming store environment for our clients and volunteers." Lengler explained that when the West Seattle Helpline first opened its doors in 1989, they had only a small clothing closet in their office. In 1995, the closet grew into a full-scale clothing bank called “The Clothesline,” the only free clothing store of its kind in West Seattle. Ever since, it has been a critical community resource for neighbors in need; last year, over 2000 adults and children recovering from hardship received more than $130,000 in clothing at no cost from The Clothesline. Whether it's a warm coat for a child to wear to school or professional attire for a job interview, this program ensures that people don't go without the basic necessity of safe, comfortable clothing. "We anticipate that the new Clothesline will open in late March. Details about the new Clothesline schedule, volunteer opportunities, and other ways to get involved are be coming soon. Stay tuned!
