Uncertainty: clothing provided for free to students in Toulouse

From April 4, students in precarious situations can obtain free clothing in the Dressed solidarity shop. It was founded by the association Equipage Solidaire and will be located in the Musée des Abattoirs.

To combat student insecurity, the association Equipage Solidaire is launching an initiative in Toulouse: the opening of Dressed, a solidarity shop where students in financial difficulties can get free clothes. This initiative follows the success of the first store in Paris, where more than 2,400 garments were distributed. This new store, located in the Musée des Abattoirs, will be inaugurated on April 4 and is open every Thursday, outside school holidays. Depending on the available clothing stock, the opening hours will be adjusted.

The clothing, new or second-hand in perfect condition, comes from donations from large companies, brands, independent entrepreneurs or private individuals. After being washed, sorted and classified by the association, they are made available free of charge to students in precarious situations. Access to the store will therefore depend on the student’s financial situation.

The TFC and Bigflo and Oli support the initiative

The Equipage Solidaire association benefited from the support of the Toulouse Football Club (TFC) endowment fund, the Toulouse Football Coeur. As part of this collaboration, club Violets will provide clothing from its own store. In addition, TFC’s partner brands, namely Serge Blanco and Visionnaire, the clothing brand of Bigflo and Oli, expressed their wish to support the charity by also donating clothing.

“We receive requests every week from students in precarious situations, much more than we can imagine, because uncertainty is not always visible,” explains Rania Daki, head of the Equipage department in Toulouse.
