About Community Closet

Our Community Closet is located at the Community Resource Center (1585 N Rand Road) in the Community Cares Suite.  Our goal is to provide clothing attire to people in need within our community all year long.

After a minimal donation is made of $1 per person, families can choose clothing for their entire family.  They must be referred to the closet by a social worker from area organizations ie: Community Consolidated School District 15 (CCSD15), Palatine High School, Fremd High School, Partners for Our Communities (POC) and Palatine Police Department to name a few.  Once qualified by the referring organization, they are signed up with a date and time to shop and are given a voucher used for entry.

The Community Closet has infant to adult size clothing that is stocked by generous donations from the Palatine community and local organizations.  We are so grateful for the collaboration of the Northwest Suburban Council (NWSC) of PTA/PTSA and Community Consolidated School District 15 (CCSD15) for their support with donation collection bins and delivering the donations to the Community Closet.  Note: School-age children are also provided with new socks and underwear.
