As Clara's Closet is growing, we must take caution to balance our incoming donations with our ability to process them. And you may be the key to helping us serve even better. Can you efficiently sort and hang usable clothes for our shop clients?

Over the last two years, under Carol Williams, Clara's Closet has developed its ability to serve in planning, organization and retail aspects of the shop, including building and training the Volunteer team. However, the need for effective processing helpers 10-1, M-F is indeed great. Please consider joining us one or more of those days. But arrangements must be made prior with our staff.

How do you sign up to volunteer? Please come to the COMPLEX during open shop hours, Monday and Thursday ONLY 10am-1pm, to meet Carol for your first day. There is some training in efficient processing as well as minor customer service. On these particular days the shop is also full of the people we serve, visiting for their once-per-month allotment.

Donation Details

Donations of new and gently-used clothing & home goods can be dropped off in our basement level receiving center at our side entrance at Beard & Wesley Aves, in the Parkside neigborhood, Monday-Thursday 10am-1pm. These hours are subject to change at any time so please check back here or the Facebook Page for Updates and Closings.


PLEASE NOTE: Clara's Closet staff do not keep regular daytime receiving hours. Because of this, we ask that you bring a helper with you who can both lift and manipulate stairs. Otherwise, please plan to bring items only Mondays and Thursdays 11am-1pm, which fall during the regular "shop hours" and a Clara's staff member may be able to assist. Be forewarned, the shop and entrance may be crowded with people, many who do not speak english, including children and babies. Please use caution.
