Clothes Closet

Neighbors' Clothes Closet Thrift Store has a dual purpose: proceeds from sales provide funding for Neighbors, Inc.’s emergency and supportive services, like the food shelf, transportation and holiday programs. In addition, clients can receive free vouchers to shop in the store for needed clothing or household items. All of this is made possible with the help of our volunteers.

  • Sort clothing and household items. Determine what is able to be sold and what must be recycled
  • Provide customers service by greeting customers, answering questions and assisting customers with finding items when necessary. Cashiers will ring up sales, count money and provide change
  • Organize, clean and straighten racks and the sales floor. Help to create a beautiful space where customers can shop with dignity and joy
  • Must be at least 14 years-old (or 12 if accompanied by an adult). Cashiers must be at least 18
