What Do We Do?
Shopping at God's Closet is the same experience as shopping at a regular store with the exception that all our clothes are free!
You pay $1 as an entrance fee, we provide you with the bags then you are invited to enter our venue and shop. For easy shopping, donations are sorted by size and by gender.
God's Closet is for anyone. We do not ask for any type of documentation.
EVERYONE is welcomed to shop. If you are a parent and need clothes for your children (ages newborn to 14 years old) then God's Closet is for you!
We provide children’s clothes, shoes, and bedding ONLY. We do not accept or distribute any type of child-related items like car seats, toys, stuff animals, etc.
At each event we determined how many bags each family receives, this is based solely and completely on the number of donations we obtain. ‘Shoppers’ may take only the amount of bags assigned by the organization of God’s Closet at each event. Additional bags are not permitted. Every family receives the same amount of bags irrespective of the number of family members.
We are not a store; we do not maintain regular business hours. Our events happen only once every three months and that is the only time you are able to shop. Dates and times are posted right here on our Facebook page.
God’s Closet charges a $1 entrance fee to shop. The fee is per family, not per person. The fee helps us cover all the expenses incurred.
We are always in need of donations. God’s Closet is a ministry and is run by volunteers.
