Clothing Assistance – Our Closet

Smiling women looking through clothing

Our Closet provides free, quality clothing to those in need in a warm and welcoming environment. We do so via pop-up shops, In Your Neighborhood visits, and our emergency package delivery program.

Pop-Up Shops

Anyone in need is welcome to shop for clothing items, shoes, and accessories at host sites across Philadelphia. There are no referrals required or forms to fill out. Volunteers and staff assist shoppers in finding items they need that match their sizes and styles. Pop-up shop sites include churches, synagogues, hospitals, and community centers.

In Your Neighborhood

Our Closet mini-pop-up shops can also be found at JFCS In Your Neighborhood visits, along with fresh food and access to social services.

Emergency Package Delivery Program

Launched during the COVID-19 crisis, this emergency program delivers customized packages of much needed clothing to community members. This program continues to serve homebound individuals and those without transportation to our pop-up shops.

Volunteers

Volunteers are central to Our Closet. There are multiple meaningful ways to get involved: sorting and packing clothing at our warehouse in Springfield, Delaware County; working directly with shoppers to provide a warm, dignified experience at a pop-up shop; and joining us at In Your Neighborhood visits. Individuals, families, school groups, and corporate volunteers are all welcome.

Clothing Donations

Clothing donations are core to the work of Our Closet, and we are so appreciative of all who help in this way. We accept casual clothing for women, men, and children of all ages, in excellent condition (please no stains or tears and clothing that is not overly worn).

To receive needed clothing, make an appointment to donate clothing at our warehouse, or get involved as a volunteer, please visit www.ourclosetpa.org.
