When you have more than you need, SHARE!!!
Open Closet Economy Shop at Open Table of Christ United Methodist Church provides clothing and household items at a low cost or free. It is located in the same part of the church where Project Outreach distributes food twice a week. The shop is open to anyone and the proceeds of the sales help support the many other community programs happening at the church and pay some of the utility costs.
We are continually amazed at the level of generosity of the people who donate to Open Closet. We often have more than we can sell or giveaway in a timely manner. Thanks to the many connections that our volunteers have with other charitable organizations and government agencies, we have been able to provide clothing to the Rhode Island Department of Children Youth and Families, RI Public Defenders Office, Children’s Friend, Head Start, local schools, Amos House, Providence Rescue Mission, Harrington Hall Homeless Shelter, Mobile Loaves and Fishes Truck for the homeless, the annual Mayor’s Coat Drive on the day after Thanksgiving, South Providence Neighborhood Ministries, Crossroads Family Shelter, and individual families in crisis.
