The Clothing Closet has reopened on a limited basis - Wednesdays, from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm. Only one adult shopper per household will be admitted, and only three individuals will be permitted entry at a time to facilitate social distancing. Face coverings are required and individuals will be allowed to shop for up to two bags of clothing with a time limit of 30 minutes. There is a great selection of summer clothes available and we look forward to seeing our shoppers once again.
Now in our 19th year of continuous ministry, we seek to provide free clothing to those in need. Recipients are sent by the Mahwah Department of Human Services, Center for Food Action, Ramapo Indian Council, or by Pastor Bill Grob. We have also helped Catholic Charities, Jersey Cares, NJSACC, Hudson Valley DDSO, Midnight Run for the Homeless, plus several residents in need.
We accept gently used women's, men's and children's clothes, shoes and accessories (we do not take men's suits). Due to limited space and storage, we can only accept seasonal items, and ask that you hold out-of-season donations until that time of year. Donations can be dropped off at the Clothing Closet on Wednesday's between 9:30 am and 11:30 am. If you are unable to come at this time, donations can be brought to the church office Monday-Friday, 9:30 am-12:00 pm.
We hold four (quarterly) Saturday Bag Sales open to everyone. Come and fill a bag for $5. All proceeds from the sale go to the ongoing community ministry of the Church. The Clothing Closet's Back-To-School Bag Sale is scheduled for Saturday, August 29th from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm.
FREE clothes are available for those in need. Referrals from any social services program or agency are accepted. Mahwah residency is not required. Call 201-529-3075 for more information, and an appointment will be made with volunteers of the Clothing Closet.
Our volunteers receive and sort clothing donations each Wednesday morning (9:30 am-12:00 pm). Please call the church (201-529-3075) if you are interested in volunteering.
We are located at 100 Island Road, Mahwah, New Jersey. The Clothing Closet is at the rear of the Education Building of the Ramapo Reformed Church located on the corner of Island Road and West Ramapo Avenue.
