FREE Shopping Event Sunday, December 8th - 1 to 4 pm
God’s Closet is a non-profit organization that supports families in need. We are extremely excited to be in Columbia. We collect and distribute new and gently used children’s clothes. Once every quarter we open our doors to the community to come and shop FREE of charge for all their children’s clothing needs.
Shopping at God's Closet is the same experience as shopping at a regular store with the exception that all the clothes are free! We ask only for $1 as an entrance fee, (fee is per family, not per person). The fee helps cover all expenses incurred. We provide shoppers with the bags then invite them to enter our venue and shop. For easy shopping, donations are sorted by size and by gender.
At each event we determine how many bags each family receives. This is based on the amount of donations we obtain, the more donations we have the more we can share. We are not a store; we do not maintain regular business hours. Our events happen only once every three months and that is the only time ‘shopping’ is available. Dates and times for events are posted on our facebook page www.facebook.com/GodsClosetColumbia.
God's Closet is for everyone. We provide clothes for children ages newborn to teenager. God’s Closet only accepts children’s clothes, shoes and bedding. We do not receive or distribute adult clothes or any type of child related items such as car seats, toys, stuffed animals etc.
God’s Closet is volunteer friendly, it is ran 100% by volunteers. During God’s Closet each volunteer is required to donate 2 hours of their time in order to 'shop'. Volunteers always 'shop' first and they do not pay the shopping fee! During our events we provide child care for children ages 4 to 8 years old.
