Community Closet is a free store that allows students to update their wardrobes while reducing waste and having a positive impact on the environment. Students can visit the store to get clothing and household items at no cost, or donate gently used items if they are able. We appreciate your support and kindness, and with your help, we can make a positive difference for other students and the communities we serve. Please review the donation guidelines before donating your items.
