Our Closet is…

Our Closet provides free clothing to vulnerable community members. The individuals and families who shop at Our Closet often face a number of challenging issues. The free clothing that they receive frees up other income and allows them to work toward achieving their long range goals. Our work is driven by the time and energy given to us by a crew of talented volunteers and the generosity of donors who provide Our Closet with over 30,000 articles of clothing annually.

  • How It Works:

    • Our Closet is open every Tuesday from 10-12:30 at 5548 Chestnut Street.
    • We are located in the offices of LIFT- Philadelphia.
    • Our store operates on a “number system” which means that customers are welcome to come at 9, take a number and then are assigned a time to come back and shop once the store opens.
    • Each customer receives five articles of clothing, outerwear or accessories.
    • No referral is needed.
  • About Us:

    • Our Closet is a “pop up shop” that provides free clothing to individuals in need in a welcoming space that is a boutique type setting.
    • Our Closet provides these clothes in dignified manner and allows individuals to accept these items with pride and confidence.
    • Our mission is to allow easy access to quality free clothing to people right in their own neighborhood so that they can continue to strive to meet their personal goals

The free clothing she receives at Our Closet helps to alleviate some of her financial constraints, so she can focus on other ways to support her family as she locates a stable source of income. “Our Closet has provided a way for me to find beautiful clothing for my grandchildren…clothing I never would have been able to provide them with on my own. We are grateful.”

Meet Jacqueline

Meet Jacqueline, a counselor at Temple University's Episcopal Campus, who bring different clients each week to Our Closet. Her clients are recovering from addiction issues and have recently been in prison. They are desperately trying to set goals and achieve them and have many obstacles in the way. “We are grateful for the donations these clients in recovery have received. Our clients come to us from jail and they are coming to us with nothing. They come to Our Closet to pick out clothing, and they feel supported, they feel they matter and they want to keep coming back!”
