Knox County clothing closets.

A limited supply of free clothing in Knox County is available from several organizations. There are restrictions in place, and all items passed out will only help qualified individuals. The clothing closets will also only assist an income qualified family a certain number of times per year.

Families with a limited income can get help, based on availability. Not only may an article of clothes be passed out, but the centers can also provide information on various social services or other charities that offer free food, shelter, and other aid.

The hours of each clothing closet in the Knoxville area are limited too. They are generally open a couple days per week as there is difficulty in arranging volunteers to work at them. However there may also be some special programs run throughout the year. As an example, working poor families with students may receive free school supplies. Or there is Christmas and holiday presents passed out along with clothing during the fall and winter months.
