Community Closet was created to give students an opportunity to update their wardrobes while having a positive net impact on the environment. It is a free store where students can get clothing and household items at no cost, or donate gently used items if they are able. Thank you for your kindness, with your support we can positively impact other students and the communities in which we operate. Please read through the donation guidelines before bringing in your goods.
