Fairfield County area Connecticut free clothes, back to school supplies and clothing closets.

Families from the Fairfield County Connecticut region, including Bridgeport, can look into the resources (including free coats, school supplies, clothes, household items and more) that are provided by local clothing closets. Non-profit agencies, social service organizations, and other charities (such as churches) provide free or low cost clothes, diapers, school supplies or uniforms, furniture and basic needs to the less fortunate.

Thousands of children, seniors, homeless, and low income families receive assistance from these centers every year. The sites may provide school clothes, professional work attire, and maternity clothing. Other locations will focus more on household goods, such as furniture, linens, baby supplies, diapers, and holiday assistance programs. Some even pass out free birthday gifts or meals. Each agency will have its own items on hand for the less fortunate and the availability will vary.
