Community Care Closet/Food Cupboard

Vi Dolmayer

    Community Care Closet began with a mom whose young toddler had outgrown many of his clothes. This mom’s desire was to make these clothes, many of them like new, available free-of-charge to people in the community. The first Care Closet was open to the public on Saturday, August 22, 2020. Since then, we have been open the first and third Saturday of each month from 9:00 AM to noon. The only exception is if the first or third Saturday falls on a holiday.

We accept from anyone donations of men’s clothing, ladies clothing, and clothing for children of any age/size. also welcome donations of lingerie, shoes, toys, winter coats and jackets, purses and handbags. However, we cannot accept ladies bathing suits or used ladies panties.

We also accept donations of towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, and most household items. Donated sheets should include a note stating what is included and the bed size of the sheets. If a donor is uncertain whether a household item will be accepted, they should contact Trinity Presbyterian Church. The only requirement for making a donation to our Care Closet is that ALL items be clean and free of pet hair.


The Care Closet has been expanded to include a Food Pantry. There are many unperishable food items from which to choose, as well as many toiletry items. We ask that “shoppers” be considerate of other families in need, by NOT taking all of one item, but limiting their choice to one per family. In that way we can better meet the needs of more people.

We cannot accept donations to the Food Pantry of items with a past expiration date. Pease check the date prior to making a donation.
