Lehigh County free clothing closets and thrift stores.

Lehigh County families looking for free clothing items, or people looking for discounted goods, can stop by a clothing closet for help. If the individual is not qualified for assistance from one of these charitable organizations then they can turn to a local thrift store instead. Between the two types of centers there may be shoes, free winter coats or school supplies, work attire, and more offered. Examples of goods are as follows.

-Parents can get items for their kids, such as shoes, backpacks for school, or small Christmas items.
-Job seekers can apply for professional work attire.
-Thrift stores in Allentown will sell gently used furniture, beds, cribs, and similar items.

The lowest income families may be given free items or vouchers to shop at a clothing closet. Other people will need to pay some money for what they need, however they may still experience savings from the locations.
