Our Closet recognizes that many vulnerable community members are struggling to make ends meet. By providing free, quality clothing to community members in need, Our Closet hopes to meet a basic need for our customers so they can better focus on handling other stressors in their lives. And, through strategic partnerships with like-minded agencies, we hope to create a powerful network to provide our customers with the wraparound supports they need.
Every week, Our Closet sets up a pop-up clothing store that simulates a true shopping experience with tables, hanging racks, mirrors and a check out counter. Our store is volunteer-run, and individuals throughout the Greater Philadelphia region have generously donated the clothing we provide. There is no eligibility and customers are entitled to select up to 5 items free of charge. The store currently operates in partnership with community-based organizations throughout Philadelphia.
Our Closet relies on donations of clothing, resources, and time to sustain our operations. Consider making a tax-deductible donation.
Our Closet is volunteer-driven, and we welcome individuals and groups to get involved in our work. Here are some of the many ways you can help:
