About Sharia's Closet
Founded in humble beginnings, the vision and intention of Sharia's Closet have remained constant over the past 8 years to accommodate the growing need for emergency clothing in San Diego's communities. All clothing and hygiene items that are graciously donated to Sharia's Closet are then given to people in need, and there is never an exchange of money for the clothing and hygiene items that Sharia's Closet provides. People of all ages, genders, identities, and cultural backgrounds are served with dignity and respect through Sharia's Closet, one purple bag at a time.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
