THE CLOTHING CLOSET
Caring volunteers in the Clothing Closet offer free, quality clothes shared by a generous community. Respectfully, together we make the love of Jesus tangible.
A word from our Coordinator on the Covid related changes:
The Clothing Closet is OPEN and committed to offering our community a safe, relaxed and enjoyable shopping experience. For the time being, all shopping will be by appointment only on Wednesday afternoons or Thursday mornings. Email me or call the church at 519 823 5851 to book your appointment.
We know the lockdowns and restrictions have been hard on people and we wish to assure you that we are working hard at providing great quality clothing at no cost to you.
We are also working hard to ensure your safety by adhering to the public health and government regulations. To help spread out, we have returned to our core offerings of great quality clothing only. All incoming donations are isolated for a minimum of 72 hours; high touch surfaces are disinfected; new systems mean fewer volunteers handle the clothing, and we’ve eliminated the stapled tags, so no holes. We will ask for your contact information in the unlikely event that we need to contact you. Directional arrows are in place and people are required to wear masks and sanitize their hands. Children must be in a stroller or we can provide a grocery cart.
To our generous donors, thank you for sharing your excess with us. Since we are operating at a reduced capacity with a tiny group of caring volunteers, we are accepting only a limited amount of donations. Please, only good quality, clean, in-season clothing and linens. We no longer offer household items, toys or books. And very importantly, we kindly ask that you not leave donations at the door. They end up ruined and of no use to anyone and we know that’s not your intention. If we are full, you’ll see a sign on the door saying, “sorry, no donations today”. This changes daily.
Drop off times: Monday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday 9:00-12:00 plus Wednesday 1:00-3:00. Please ring the doorbell.
Thank you for bearing with us as we respond to frequent changes, re-invent, re-imagine, revamp, re, re… Above all, we hope that you feel well cared for in the Clothing Closet.
