The Clothes Closet offers 20-minute appointments for shopping, and clients may shop for clothes twice per month. Walk-in spots are usually available, but to reduce your wait time, we recommend making an appointment in advance. You may call 630-406-0036 to schedule your appointment, or schedule it online.

On your shopping day, please arrive 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time to get checked in. If you are late or miss your time, you will have to wait for a walk-in opening. If you are scheduling a food pickup on the same day, please let the Food Pantry staff know when they call to schedule your pick up. Thank you!


The Clothes Closet is currently accepting SPRING clothing donations. See the column on the right for drop-off hours, and please do not leave donations outside at other times.

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.
