The Community Closet accepts all donations of clean and gently-used men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, and paperback books. In order to continue to provide quality products at fair prices for our customers while supporting programs that improve the lives of people in our community, we ask that donations be of high-quality, not worn through or excessively faded, and free from stains, tears, and missing buttons, strings or other such items. Items that do not meet our standards pose an undue burden on volunteers, and our resources. Your cooperation, patronage, and overwhelming generosity is graciously appreciated.
