God’s Closet is a ministry that collects and distributes gently used children’s clothing to local families in need through recurring Shop Day events.
Clothing items size newborn through 12 are collected throughout the year, utilizing a donation network that includes church members, community members, and local businesses.
Each local chapter of God’s Closet hosts Shop Day events typically once a quarter, though it may vary depending on church and community size. Clothing donations are sorted by size and gender and displayed throughout the shop area, where community guests can browse and select the items they need until the designated number of shopping bags are full.
Typically, shoppers pay a small entrance fee, the recommended fee is $1, to come in and shop. Once inside, all the clothes they fit into their shopping bags are free of charge.
Each God’s Closet chapter is registered through GodsCloset.com. However, each chapter is locally managed and is under the direction of its host church(es).
