The Closet is a nonprofit thrift shop, founded in 1974 by a handful of churches to assist low-income families by selling used clothing at nominal prices. In 2013, The Closet gave away more than $55,000 worth of clothing and necessities to over 2000 needy persons referred by an authorized social service agency or one of our member congregations, as well as donating more than $42,500 in profits to local organizations and providing scholarships to local students.
