What would you wear to a job interview? That is exactly the type of clothing we are looking for to distribute to our clients. Your fabulous suits and other professional apparel could furnish another woman with the confidence to enter or return to the workplace, make a great first impression and land a job that could change her life.
Additionally, many of our clients go directly to an interview, so please ensure that all items donated are freshly dry-cleaned / laundered and ironed, not more than 5 years old, and suitable for wearing to job interviews. Thanks!

Most businesses are closed. But being closed to the public does not mean that work does not still go on. At Good Shepherd’s Clothes Closet we are working toward the time when we will reopen.Almost all of our financial obligations are fixed expenses which still need to be met. As you know we use volunteers so we have a staff of only two people.We are preparing to get back to giving away free clothes when we are once again able to do so safely and responsibly. We anticipate that many people, especially families with children, will be struggling financially. To keep going we need monetary donations now to be ready to help. Keep in mind that we give away clothes at no charge to the recipient. We depend on your generosity.We have plenty of clothes and are confident that the volunteers will come back. Meanwhile we need money to keep functioning while we work toward what it takes to once again serve those in need in the Reno-sparks community.Please consider a cash donation to Good Shepherd’s Clothes Closet.
