fill (y)our closet: a POP-UP sale with a purpose
Join us for our next sale on September 20th and 21st! RSVP on our Facebook event page and even snag a presale outfit on our Instagram account. All proceeds go towards the Clothing Closet, ensuring clients have the items they need (for free), like new socks and underwear.
A NEW SEASON FOR THE CLOTHING CLOSET - Dawn Beedle was the visionary who created the clothing program. Recognizing an unmet need in our community, she created Dawn’s Closet, and in 2005, partnered with Valley Outreach. Originally offering career wear to women, the program expanded to offer clothing for the entire family. Dawn passed away in 2007, yet her energy and her legacy carries on through the strength of the current program. The Clothing Closet is continually evolving, looking for new ways to meet client needs. fill (y)our closet, a pop-up sale with a purpose, allows us to generate revenue, 100% of which goes directly back into the Clothing Closet to purchase items not typically donated.
Undie Week planning is under way! This is our annual fall drive to collect new socks and underwear for those who visit our Clothing Closet. Valley Outreach, along with area churches, collects donations of new, in-the-package socks and underwear.
Our faith partners kick off with Undie Sunday on October 1, 2017, which then leads into the broader community Undie Week from October 2 through 6.
The Valley Outreach Clothing Closet offers gently used clothing for children and adults, relying almost exclusively on donations from area residents. What is not gently used, however, are the socks and underwear distributed to those in need.
What the heck is Undie Sunday?

Our third annual Summer Party on June 21st was a blast. With co-hosts Life Bridge Beer Company, and new sponsorship, we came together as a community to enjoy each other and learn a bit about Valley Outreach. From 5-8 pm in beautiful weather, nearly 300 people enjoyed inflatables, food trucks, beer and root beer, live music and tours of Valley Outreach.
