My Girlfriend's Closet

My Girlfriend's Closet is a non-profit organization localized in San Diego, California that collects quality, gently used clothing, shoes and accessories and distributes them to foster, homeless and disadvantaged teenage girls.

By providing stylish clothing in an inviting boutique-like "shopping" environment, we offer a unique wardrobe resource that aims at helping these disadvantaged girls feel more self-confident and comfortable in their schools and communities. We collect clothing throughout the year at various locations, and hold sorting and distribution events several times a year.

See our Events & News page for more information about upcoming clothing sorting and distribution events.

How It Started

The organization's name, My Girlfriend's Closet, was chosen to reflect the desire of the founding teens to share their gently used clothing with disadvantaged girls their own age - just as they do with their girlfriends. The organization's structure was designed to include and, in fact, depend upon the active participation and shared decision-making of the teen volunteers, thus fulfilling another objective: to teach tomorrow's young community leaders how to initiate and effectively run a nonprofit organization for the benefit of the community.
