Westmoreland County and Greensburg free clothing closets and thrift stores.

Whether it is a charity clothing center or a thrift store in Westmoreland County, families have the ability to receive the free clothes and related items they need. The programs will differ by location. Some will provide free work clothes, winter gear or household items. Others are more seasonal and offer back to school supplies, offer vouchers or sell gently used items. However in all cases there will be some form of help provided to income qualified residents.

Some of the centers focus on new moms or babies, and they offer infant clothing or even diapers. Other organizations will also pass out school supplies during the fall or run seasonal, Christmas programs based on donations from the community. However those programs are not common.

More likely the applicant will be given some basic clothing items from a Westmoreland County non-profit. This may be for work or coats for children to keep warm during the winter months. More details are below.
