Nashville and Davidson County free clothing closets, furniture, and back to school supplies.

Non-profit organizations in Davidson County can distribute free clothes and other household goods to the needy. There may be clothes for work, free school supplies for students or everyday wear. Charities may also pass out free school uniforms or birthday toys, and some locations even give furniture or major household goods. Some items are free and others may be sold at a reduced price. Each charity or center will have conditions that need to be met by applicants.

The centers offer assistance programs. They vary by clothing bank or thrift store, but many provide free or low cost clothing, back to school supplies or uniforms, household goods and more for people who need it. While the available items depend on what has been donated to a clothing center or thrift shop, this will impact what is on on hand at any given time. Free furniture banks also help low income families in Davidson County. The items offered will change from day to day.

Donations and contributions are always needed in the Nashville area. So centers may provide children's or work clothes, maternity items and shoes. Donate and give back if you can. Another focus is on helping people gain a job, so clothes for an interview, or job programs may be offered too, and locate free employment resources in Tennessee.
