Clothing Closet

Many kids come into foster care with only the clothes on their backs.

We know that it can be hard for foster parents to get clothing, diapers, and baby gear when kids come into their home. Sometimes reimbursement checks and clothing vouchers are delayed or don’t arrive, and sometimes seasonal clothing is out of stock in stores. Our clothing closet in Newark is meant to help foster parents through the transition by providing kids’ clothing from NB to 5T, diapers, wipes, baby gear, backpacks, and toys. 

Our clothing closet at St. John’s United Church of Christ is open the first and third Fridays of the month from 10am to noon.

If those times are not convenient, please email us to set up an appointment. St. John’s is located at 285 W. National Drive in Newark. (Enter through the office doors.)

Have something in excellent condition from the list above to donate? Contact us to arrange pick-up!

We can’t do this without your help.

Your donation helps children have a better shot at a bright future.

Use your time and skills to make a difference in a foster child’s life.
