Get Involved

Want to get involved?  Each stage of our work – collecting, sorting, and distributing clothing – is crucial for the success of our organization, as well as a huge source of personal satisfaction for our volunteers.  We are always looking for:

Mother and teenage daughter teams who want to help make a difference in the lives of foster, homeless and economically disadvantaged teenage girls and young women in need.

Teenage boys and young men who would like to assist with loading and unloading bins and display racks, and provide security during distribution events.

My Girlfriend’s Closet is always looking for dedicated mother and teen daughter teams who would like to take a position of leadership within our organization by becoming a member of our Board of Directors. We recommend that those interested in becoming board members first gain experience with volunteering for our organization by holding a collection drives, attending a sorting events and/or distribution events.

We will be accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Board of Directors in the Spring of 2019.  Please check back then for instructions and applications.

 

Collect Clothing 

Conduct a clothing collection at your club, organization, school, church or synagogue, business, or in your neighborhood. Students can earn community service hours for coordinating a collection drive. Plus, we make it easy! My Girlfriend’s Closet will provide a detailed checklist to guide you through the process at every step of the way.

Sort Clothing 

My Girlfriend’s Closet hosts a major sorting events approximately one day to two weeks before the Distribution of clothing. Volunteers gather at a local gymnasium and form teams to carefully inspect and organize the huge piles of clothing and accessories we have collected. Items that meet our standards for quality are separated by size and type, packed into bins, and trucked to our storage facility.

Volunteers are needed to load items onto the rental truck, unload them at the sorting location, sort items into bins, load bins onto the truck, and unload them at the storage facility.

Distribute Clothing

Volunteer at a Distribution event! Twice a year, we display the clothing that has been donated to our organization in a shopper-friendly, “boutique-like” setting. At the event, foster and homeless girls come in and choose the clothing of their desire at no cost. Each recipient can gather up to two bags of clothing, shoes and accessories. The “store” is open for approximately 2 hours. Volunteers are needed for 3 separate shifts:

1) Set up the store

2) Replenish the clothes and provide assistance to “shoppers”

3) Break down displays and load items onto a truck

This is a fun opportunity to help for a few hours and see exactly where the donations go: to the girls in our community who need it most.
