After much thought, discussion, and prayer, Haywood Street has come to the difficult decision to close our clothing closet. In order for us to live out our mission and serve our community with the abundance it deserves, we have decided to put our efforts into our other ministries.
We are grateful to all who have helped sustain the closet throughout the years. The many donors who supplied clothing and other items, and all the dedicated and caring companions who sorted clothing and helped friends with a warm welcoming smile.
We close the closet with the faith that God will meet and exceed the needs to fulfill through other resources in our community – some of which are listed below.
Clothing and other items may be donated to and obtained at the following local non-profits:
