Our Community Closet was officially launched in September 2016 as a free resource that provides basic necessities for local individuals and families in need. We stock in our Closet items such as gently used baby and toddler clothing, maternity wear, work attire, coats and jackets, and baby items such as bottles, blankets, diapers, wipes and beyond, thanks to the generous donations from our community.
This year, we've decided to implement a few OPEN CLOSET DAYS that will allow those in need the opportunity to come and browse all of our Closet inventory. We will be transferring our inventory to a private room hosted at Tang Soo Do University for these events, where pre-registered individuals and families can enter and spend time collecting some much needed items.
WHEN IS OUR OPEN CLOSET DAY?
Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
WHERE IS OUR OPEN CLOSET DAY?
Tang Soo Do University in Newbury Park

Our Open Closet Day is open to all local individuals and families who are in need (for whatever reason). If this would make a difference for you, we'd like to hear more about your needs and how we can help. Please pre-register by Feb. 1, 2017.
WHY SHOULD I PRE-REGISTER?
By pre-registering, you're giving the board members ample time to obtain additional donations to meet your specific needs if we don't currently have Closet inventory that would be a fit.

We will need volunteers to help in the morning with set-up, to provide assistance during the Open Closet Day hours, and to help with break-down and cleanup. This is a great opportunity for kids as well. You can EMAIL US (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in volunteering and we will coordinate your availability.
