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 certificates to shop in the store for needed clothing or household items. All of this is made possible with the help of our volunteers.
