Onondaga County clothing closets and thrift stores.

Families in need across Onondaga County can turn to a clothing closet for free or low cost goods. Many of the locations also partner with thrift stores, or maybe they run one of those centers at the same time. The non-profits that often run these distribution sites provide donated clothing, school uniforms or supplies, work attire, linens and maybe small appliances to eligible individuals.

A team of volunteers work at many of these clothing closets. They not only offer support from the center but the staff often also partner with county as well as city officials to coordinate support across Syracuse and the County. This can range from referrals to benefits to emergency supplies from a thrift store in a disaster.

There are a few times of the year that end to more more challenging for low income families, and this can be the winter months or back to school season. Also, new parents often struggle with increased expenses too. During those periods the centers may offer assistance such as school supplies, winter coats for children, diapers, or goods for other critical needs.
