The clothes closet is available for the community members to select up to 2-bags of clothing – for personal use each month.
TEO is dropping the need for an appointment to shop, however, TEO is operating with protocols in place for social distancing and safety related to COVID-19. Steps include limiting the number of people in the building. Entry will be at the discretion of the volunteers based on available space.
Based on community donations, TEO offers free clothing for men, women, infants, and children.
While TEO appreciates the giving nature of our community we do need to place a few restrictions on donations.
- This is a bin outside for drop offs (large bags or boxes will not fit in the bin. Glass items should not be put in the bin. Do not leave anything outside the bin. TEO is monitored by cameras and we will ask the police for assistance to locate you to come pick your items.
- Over the years, items that have been left outside have become unusable which creates a cost to TEO to dispose of the items.
- Items donated should be clean and in like new/gently worn condition only. Please ensure that the clothing items are not ripped, stained, or otherwise in need of repair. To help our volunteers, please sort clothes by age/gender/season and mark the bags accordingly. If you have items that are no longer usable please mark the bag “recycling”.
- Due to the limited space that TEO has, only small household items and children’s toys are accepted. Items with plugs are not accepted. If you are in doubt, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, there is a bulletin board on which community members can post the items they would like to share.
The Clothes Closet at TEO is staffed by volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call 978-877-6002 or email email@example.com
