Kidz Klozet

KidzKlozetRoundKidz Klozet is a free clothing closet ministry that provides kids’ clothes to low-income families. This ministry first opened in 2009 when two friends felt challenged to make a difference in people’s lives. Today, we continue in the same caring spirit helping low-income families in our neighborhood and surrounding communities make ends meet.

Kidz Klozet is open the 1st Tuesday of every month (from 9-11 am). We are located just off the Hope Avenue Great Room on Level 1 at Elim. Please contact the church office or check our calendar to confirm dates.
