Threads - A Core Ministry

Threads - Who we are

Clothing Children with Dignity

Threads is a volunteer-driven ministry of All Saints Episcopal Church in Atlanta, GA that provides children ages 0-12 with well-fitting new and gently used clothing, footwear and school uniforms.

We work with over 23 agencies across Metro Atlanta to serve families referred to us by social service agencies around Atlanta. Since our founding in 2004, Threads has served more than 24,000 children!

We are located on the campus of All Saints Episcopal Church in Midtown Atlanta, where we provide a boutique shopping experience with a wide variety of attractive clothing options.  We are open for shopping most Thursdays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  All families must have a referral from a Threads partner agency to shop.

 NOTE: Threads is NOT open to the public.

An All Saints' Operation

This ministry is almost completely staffed by volunteers. The Coordinator's salary and overhead are contributed by All Saints’ so that 100% of additional financial contributions and donations of new or gently used clothing goes directly to children who need it most.
