Riverside County free clothing closets, school supplies and household goods.

Residents in need of help, whether free back to school supplies, clothes, diapers and other goods can turn to Riverside California clothing closets and distribution centers. A number of locations in the region provide free items (such as furniture or household stuff) as well as everyday clothes to families. Some of the main beneficiaries include children, people who need work clothing, students and new mothers.

The exact type and amount of items offered by each center will vary. Some will offer items such as free school supplies, gently used furniture, professional work attire or free toys around Christmas. Other locations will provide only more standard clothing to Riverside area families. Another focus of many of the charities is on providing supplies to infants and new mothers, and this can include formula, diapers, or even cribs. You will need to call a location to get more details on the resources they have available.

Family Service Association of Western Riverside County administers a number of services. The locations serve as informational hubs for the community. Examples of programs include help for seniors, clothing distribution, government commodities, tax preparation, childcare, school clothes or supplies for kids from low income families, and even funds for expenses such as utilities. 459 Center Street, Riverside, CA, 92507.
