Reno and Washoe County free clothes closets, furniture banks and school supplies.

Washoe County clothing closets as well as furniture banks may provide very low income families with free clothes, back to school supplies, furniture as well as any other needed household items. This is often done by issuing a voucher, which will allow the client to acquire what they need. The goal is to not turn anyone away, so the free furniture banks and/or clothes closets also partner with thrift stores in Reno, which often help more moderate income households. Find some or all of the following from the centers.

-Personal hygiene kits.
-Clothes for work, such as suits, work boots, pants, dresses, and more.
-Children from struggling households can apply for free back to school supply programs and get uniforms, bookbags, sneakers and other items.
-Free furniture banks in Washoe County can give out coaches, beds, kitchen or cooking supplies and other goods.

The hours are limited, and Washoe County as well as Reno area families should call in advance. Also, not every person will qualify for free clothes or goods. So they can try a thrift store instead. Whether the supplies are given for free, or at a reduced price, assistance is available.
