King County and Seattle free clothing closets, furniture, and back to school supplies.

Low income families can turn to clothing closets in King County Washington for assistance. The charities may offer winter or professional attire, free school supplies or household furniture, kitchen goods, diapers and much more. A few dozen non-profit centers in the region provide a number of services to families, seniors, pregnant mothers, and others who need help in the greater Seattle Washington. The items include free school uniforms as well as supplies, work uniforms, clothes for everyday use, and even furniture and/or appliances as needed.

Most of the organizations focus on addressing a certain type of need. For example some clothing closets may distribute baby clothing and toys while others will have free work and school clothing for students or the unemployed. In addition there are some low cost thrift stores listed below, which focus on furniture, beds, baby items, and related goods. If a location in King County can't meet your needs then they may have referrals or suggestions for you. The bottom line is that the sites help thousands of people every year with meeting their basic needs as well as by distributing free stuff to low income families.

Locations also rely on donations and volunteers. This will often help determine what is available for distribution. If you can contribute any extra, gently used clothing or household goods to a thrift store or clothing closet then please do so.
