Zion's Open Closet

The Open Closet provides good, used or new clothing free to our neighbors who find it difficult to meet their family's needs. It is open most Thursdays from 12:00 noon until 5:00pm. Enter from the south upper parking lot on the 2nd level towards the back of the building. Food Shelf eligibility is the general criterion unless there are unusual circumstances--loss to fire, flight from an abusive situation, etc. Closed holidays and other closures posted in advance. We accept gently used, clean donations (rummage sale tags must be removed) and new underwear and socks. Zion volunteers manage and staff the Open Closet.
