The Famous Wheeler Clothing Sale

The return of the Famous Wheeler Clothing Sale is planned for April of 2022.

COVID-19 has forced the cancellation of the sale for the second year in a row, but The Wheeler School Parents Association is already hard at work planning for next year’s event.

Shoppers will again be invited to The Wheeler School’s Madden Gymnasium on the East Side of Providence. The gym will transform into a “pop-up” clothing store with incredible bargains for the entire family. As always, admission will be FREE

We value the participation and contributions of the Wheeler School community, and the wider community, to the long-term success of this event and we look forward to once again partnering to produce this community favorite. Donations will be accepted beginning at the start of the 2021-2022 school year.

Email with questions.


In the meantime, please read below of our efforts this year with local organizations to channel donations of gently used or new clothing that would have otherwise been donated to the Famous Wheeler Clothing Sale.

For ’20-’21, we’re taking our donated items to various organizations around Rhode Island! Read about them below!

See our first collaboration with Clothes To Kids RI that WJAR-TV reported on in October.  

• Clothes To Kids RI provides school children ages 5 – 21 in grades K – 12 & GED with a full wardrobe of clothing free of charge.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of RI  has a collection bin Wheeler is hosting in its faculty/staff parking lot, across the street from the main entrance to the school. Please see this map for the location of the bin (marked with a red X).  We have a profit-sharing partnership with BBBS, benefiting their organization, as well as the Wheeler Fund and Breakthrough Providence, the usual recipients of profits from our Clothing Sale.
