Donate Clothing

To sustain our operations, Our Closet relies on:

Clothing Donations

Financial Support

Corporate, School and Community Partnerships

 

Each month this page will be updated with our current high needs and which items we do not need. Please keep this in mind when donating.

When donating clothing and accessories to Our Closet, please remember our standard of excellence. We do not accept any clothing that is dirty, stained, torn or overly worn. Please make sure all donations are clean and packed in plastic bags with labels indicating the size and items inside. Please label, if possible, according to our 10 first-level sort categories:

• Men’s Tops

• Men’s Bottoms

         • Women’s Tops

• Women’s Bottoms

• Women’s Dresses & Skirts

         • Children’s Clothing

• Suits/Professional Wear

• Coats/Outerwear

• Shoes

         • Accessories

This makes it much easier for us to sort the items at our warehouse. Please know we DO NOT accept donations in cardboard boxes. Just reusable bags, trash bags or garment bags. Thank you so much.

By appointment only. Please call 267-256-2179 to schedule.

Directions to warehouse:

If you are using a navigation device, please enter the 400 South State Road address and not our organization name, and please make sure you specify Springfield, PA.

We are in the Marple Crossroads Shopping Center in the old PetSmart store that is on the right side of the center, a few doors to the left of the Old Navy and in between SportsClips and Dress Barn. When you make a right into the main entrance of the shopping center off of State Road (you’ll stay to the right to avoid entering the highway and follow the “Shopping Center” signs), you’ll make the first right after entering and our warehouse is right on that side.

If you have any questions about a donation, or need to arrange a drop-off time, please contact us by email, at info@ourclosetpa.org or by phone at 267-256-2179.

 

Due to capacity and organizational sustainability, Our Closet may cycle a small portion of clothing donations to other providers for a small profit to be invested back into Our Closet program delivery.

 

UPDATE: Shoppers and Volunteers - Due to ongoing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), in accordance with guidelines and regulations set forth by the city and state, we unfortunately do have to cancel pop-up shops for the foreseeable future. These include:

Please stay tuned to this website and our social media channels (@ourclosetpa) for further updates. We'll continue to monitor the situation as we decide when to re-open pop-up shops.

This decision is being made for the health and wellness of our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at info@ourclosetpa.org. Thank you.
