The Giving Closet believes that no one should be without clothes, food and an education. They work to serve individuals and families from a variety of backgrounds empowering them to claim a fresh start. Their intent is to see that every person in crisis is given resources to meet their basic needs. With the help of many volunteers and a giving community, The Giving Closet has been fortunate to support more than 4,200 families in our community since opening in 2000.
In 2011, The Giving Closet began new programs free of charge that work to enhance the lives of many Clark County citizens. The programs include child after school tutoring, teen and adult G.E.D. support, a mentoring program that includes basic life skills classes, and adult basic education.
Every summer, The Giving Closet hosts a "Back to School Bash," where every child who attends receives a brand new backpack and a free haircut plus plays games, wins toys and prizes, gets his or her face painted and eats lunch with the family.
There are many ways to help The Giving Closet and its cause. They will recycle your belongings by donating them to families in need. They will accept your clothes, shoes, toys, books, linens, small appliances in working order, bedding, baby items, canned food and more. They will gladly provide tax receipts for donated items. The Giving Closet is also fully staffed by volunteers. If you are looking for a way to fill your day in a rewarding way, we encourage you to reach out on their website: www.givingclosetgivinghope.org
