Charleston area clothing closets.

Charleston area clothing closets can provide free items to low income families. There are locations across the metropolitan area, including in Dorchester, Charleston, and also Berkeley County. They also provide support ranging from free clothes for work or school to disaster assistance. Some will also help children during the Christmas season.

While the non-profits will generally pass out the items (as supplies and donations allow) some of the Charleston area clothing closets will give vouchers instead. This is especially true for disaster victims or those with some form of unexpected crisis.

While the goal is to provide free clothes or household goods, such as personal hygiene items, some centers, such as thrift stores, sell the goods at low prices. Also, a clothing center may have school supplies, Christmas help, and more. The primary centers are below.
