Clothing closets in Cumberland County.

Whether it is free clothes, school supplies, or household items, clothing closets across Cumberland County may be able to help. The centers, many of which are run by non-profit organizations or charities, provide assistance with basic needs or household goods to low income families and people that are struggling.

Not only may they have clothes for everyday use, but many of the centers also run seasonal type programs. This means that Portland Maine families can contact them in the summer for school supplies or uniforms. Then, during the fall months, there may be an application period for Christmas toys, clothing, or winter coats for children. So the resources are extensive.

Find the primary clothing closets and low cost thrift stores below. Also, these locations rely on donations and volunteers from the community, so if anyone can donate surplus furniture, clothing, or even provide a monetary donation, then please give contribute if possible.
