ABOUT COMMUNITY CLOSET
Community Closet is a free pop up shopping experience for underserved communities. NUBA believes that no person should ever be denied food, housing, or any other necessity just because of their income. Community Closet is a direct community-serving initiative that proves so much more can be done to combat the need for those who are not only housing and food insecure, but any individual who needs help accessing necessities at no cost.
With this community experience, we hope to inspire communities worldwide to adopt the gesture of lending a hand to our neighbors and community members regardless of their financial situation. We hope to encourage communities to build trust, communicate more often, and organize together to create a better living environment for all. If the government refuses to prioritize the wellbeing of its people, we must put our hands together to create environments based on values of sharing, assistance, and compassion.
The bottom line is, we shouldn't just give back to those in need when there is something in it for us (ex: tax deductions)-- we should give back because there is someone out there who is in need, and we have the ability to help.
We are looking for items that are gently worn or unworn. We want shoppers to feel excited about what they find, so as a courtesy, double check to make sure items are wearable and sanitary (i.e. no stains, tears (unless intentional), strong odors of any kind, etc.) Please exclude undergarments, intimates, cosmetics, beauty, hair, and other items that are not from the donation checklist categories.
HOW TO DONATE
Please refer to the Donation Checklists to see what we are in need of.
Once you've gathered your items for donation, please double check to make sure items are stain-free, tear/rip free, and do not have any strong odors present. Sanitize/Clean the items to the best of your ability.
Put all of your donations into large garbage bags or wardrobe bags. Please do not place your items in containers, as we do not have the storage capacity available for them.
Note: For donations with 6 or more bags, please contact us to arrange donation drop-off/pick up.
Schedule a Drop-off Time.
