St. Vincent de Paul's Clothing Closet Assistant

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County


Help manage our free clothing closet, and give fresh, clean clothes to those in need.

At St. Vincent de Paul's West Oakland Direct Service Campus we provide a number of services including giving people who are most in need free and clean clothes, socks, underwear, shoes, jackets etc.. Our services are open Tuesday through Thursday, and the clothing closet shift is 9am-3pm.

As a clothing closet volunteer you will be working closely with our guests to ensure that they receive excellent customer service and feel that their needs are met. You monitor the clothing closet and help people to find what they need.

SVdP welcomes students, ages 14 and older, to complete service hours in Downtown Oakland. Youth under the age of 18 will need a waiver of liability signed by a parent/guardian. Youth under the age of 16 will need an adult (someone who is 18 years or older) to accompany them the entire day of service. We love to have families volunteer together! We also accommodate small groups of students for high school service days.

In addition you ensure that everyone follows the basic rules of the clothing closet and is treated equally.

If you're interested or would like to find out more about this opportunity please don't hesitate to ask! You can call 510-277-6435 or email Zachary Zwijacz at
We look forward to hearing from you!!


As of August 9th 2021 the state of California is requiring that if you volunteer here, you must have your complete vaccination card. If you are not vaccinated but still want to volunteer, California mandates that you get tested for COVID seven days before volunteering and bring your negative test results with you once entering the site. We will be keeping a copy of everyone's vaccination cards for our records. Please feel free to email John Sterns with any questions or concerns.

Mission Statement

St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County is dedicated to serving the men, women and children of Alameda County.


A non-profit, community-based organization, St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County (SVdP) offers emergency and social safety net services to its neighbors, relying on a vast network of volunteers to carry out our mission. We operate a free dining room, thrift stores, an e-waste recycling program, men and women's drop-in centers, workforce and culinary training programs and much more. St. Vincent de Paul serves everyone regardless of origin, creed, or affiliation. Our staff and volunteers are a diverse and talented group, representing a wide range of experiences and perspectives.

St. Vincent de Paul was founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam, a 20-year-old student of the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. Similar groups began to form in Paris, then spread throughout France, and eventually throughout the world.

Volunteers, known as Vincentians, are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing. St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County was founded in 1938, and has been serving the community of Oakland ever since.
