Clothes for Joes is a Fort Wayne based Charitable organization focused on helping veterans. We collect donations from caring supporters and distribute them to veterans in need.
Our Mission is to make sure all local veterans have their essential needs met. If they wore a service uniform for our country we want to make they always have the coat, hat, shoes or other clothes they need.
Clothes for Joes is here to help. We have worked to support Shepherd's House, Safe Haven, Liberty Landing, the Rescue Mission, and other groups. We have a working knowledge of the VA hospital. We continue to educate ourselves on ways veterans can get help through government and private programs. When a veteran needs help, we do everything we can to help them. If we can't get them all the help they need, we do our best to find others who can.
Clothes for Joes has a deep respect for the men and women who have served in the United States Military. We know that their experiences may have a dramatic effect on their quality of life. Please think about making a donation to our cause. We are on a mission to help our veterans, one donation at a time.

In November 2015, Matthew and Cori Maple had an idea to help local veterans during the holiday season. They posted a few statuses and passed out flyers. With the help of friends, family, a few teachers from Snider H.S., a fellow veteran, and Texas Roadhouse, two truckloads of items were delivered to the Shepherd's House in Fort Wayne.  The number of people who were interested in helping local veterans was overwhelming.  It became obvious that this cause needed to continue and grow.  After discussions of doing an annual drive, Matt and Cori decided to create an organization that could help all year.  Together with Matt Cobb of Texas Roadhouse Clothes for Joes was born.  With the help of local businesses and organizations, we conduct fundraisers throughout the year.   We have permanent donation sites all year and we set up temporary drop of sites for clothing drives.  No veteran should go without essential needs.  Wether it's clothing, hygiene products, backpacks, coats or shoes, we accept it all.  It is our dream that all of our local Fort Wayne veterans have everything they need.   Let's come together and help make this dream a reality!  Please consider making a donation.  Click HERE to find the nearest Drop off location.
