THE CLOTHING CLOSET

The Clothing Closet offers free good quality clothing in a thrift store environment to help people stretch their budgets. Generous donors provide great finds. Caring volunteers make the atmosphere friendly, fun and relaxed. Respectfully, together we make the love of Jesus tangible.

 

WHAT WE OFFER

The Closet has returned to its core offerings of clothing and linens only.  “It’s so well organized, super easy to find the types and sizes of clothes I was looking for,” says Bonnie Tice, Aftercare Manager at Michael House.  To create the additional space for clothes, we no longer offer household items or toys.

REGISTRATION

We collect a small amount of information to help us provide you with the best possible experience of New Life Church's ministries.  When your register, you will be asked to provide picture identification that includes your name, birth year, city, and what neighbourhood you live in.  A few other questions are optional, but appreciated so we can serve our community better. You will receive a membership card to use each time you check in.

Thursdays OPEN 9:30 – 12:00 & 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

DONATIONS

Gratefully accepting in-season clean quality clothing and linens. Please ring the doorbell on the right door frame – it’s REALLY important not to leave them outside – they get ruined.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE CLOSET

“Hi there, I've been visiting your establishment for the past month and would like to share how happy I am to have found you! The selection of kid's clothing is amazing - there's a variety of sizes, the quality is as good as new and the stock is plentiful. The location is well kept and tidy, the volunteers are helpful, engaging and always have a smile on their faces. Might I add that the volunteers that serve coffee and pastries are so kind and generous (the pastries are divine by the way!)”

 

“Thank you so much, what a wonderful experience! I think it spoke volumes to their family, knowing there was a Christian community working to help those in need. The dad was a little bit at a loss for words at the generosity and warmth he found amongst the volunteer team. They are all a bunch of lights in this world.”

Together, we serve,
