Milwaukee County clothing closets.

Some specialty centers in Milwaukee can provide clothing, school supplies, and other household items to families. While free items may be provided from clothing closets to qualified individuals, another option is a thrift store. These will sell gently used items to the general public, and anyone can shop at one of these stores. A thrift store tends to have more good such as furniture or appliances.

Availability of items at a clothing closet depends on donations from the community. Some of what can typically be obtained includes general clothing or items for work, school supplies and clothes, and winter coats. A little less common would be baby supplies, diapers, and furniture. Many of the Milwaukee centers will also offer referrals and other general support to people who are seeking help. This can include information on job programs, or emergency/crisis assistance.
