The Clothes Closet is open in a limited capacity this month. We are currently allowing up to 3 shoppers at a time, while they are waiting for their food from the Food Pantry, and for a limited time of 15 minutes (if others are waiting to come in). All shoppers must wear masks in the store and use hand sanitizer prior to signing in. Because of these limitations, we ask that shoppers try to only visit the Clothes Closet once during the month, rather than the usual two times. We also ask that just one member of each household enter to shop.

The Clothes Closet is also currently open to donations of FALL and WINTER clothing. Because we have limited volunteer availability at this time, we are trying to spread out the drop off times of these donations.Please select a time from the Sign Up Genius.

The Batavia Interfaith Clothes Closet is a not-for-profit volunteer agency that is directed and operated as an extension of the food pantry by community and local church volunteers residing throughout the greater Fox Valley. Those who visit and use our Clothes Closet are our neighbors and friends: people with disabilities, seniors, low income families, and families who have lost their jobs. Certified Food Pantry Clients are eligible to shop at the Clothes Closet. The Pantry issued card is required at each visit. Clients may use the Clothes Closet twice a month.
