Confiscated Clothing Finds a Good Home

The California Labor Commissioner's office donated clothing worth more than $33,000 this week to the Shelter Partnership, Inc. The goods were seized from garment manufacturers operating illegally in Los Angeles and surrounding counties.

The California Labor Commissioner's office donated adult and children's clothing worth more than $33,000 this week to the Shelter Partnership, Inc. The goods were seized from garment manufacturers operating illegally in Los Angeles and surrounding counties. Shelter Partnership operates the S. Mark Taper Foundation Shelter Resource Bank and serves 180 homeless and domestic violence shelters.

The confiscated clothing came from companies that violated California labor laws requiring proper registration with the state. By law, confiscated clothing items must be placed in storage and disposed of or destroyed after 45 days. It may be donated to nonprofit organizations provided they agree the items will not be resold.

The office had donated confiscated clothing worth more than $14,000 one year ago. "These donated garments help individuals and families who really need them and at the same time serve to highlight the penalties this office will impose on underground employers who undermine California's economy," said California Labor Commissioner Julie A. Su. "I am delighted to have this wonderful partnership with the Shelter Partnership, Inc."

"We are thrilled to have this long-term and win-win relationship with the Department of Industrial Relations that gets new, quality clothing in the hands of children and adults experiencing homelessness in our community," responded Ruth Schwartz, the partnership's executive director.
