Get Involved

We look to our community members to volunteer through Individual, Group/Corporate and Schools/Universities Opportunities.

It is a rewarding experience for all. Volunteers are involved in every aspect of clothing distribution:

  • Collecting clothing from donors

  • Sorting, bagging, and tagging clothing

  • Running the pop-up shops

  • Host clothing drives

Individual Opportunities

Our volunteers can volunteer once or on an ongoing basis. We are grateful to our volunteers for their help with our mission of clothing assistance.

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 must cancel pop-up shops for the foreseeable future. This means there will be no pop-up shops scheduled for at least the first quarter of 2021.

If you or a client of yours is in urgent need of clothing, we have an emergency clothing program for which you or the client may qualify. Please contact us at JFCS' Care Navigation line, 866-532-7669, if you are seeking emergency services, and you will be sent a form to fill out. Please remember this program is for emergencies only.

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 we are able to re-open pop-up shops. This decision is being made for the health and wellness of our community. Thank you.
