What is the Clothes Closet?
The Clothes Closet offers free clothing to people who need it. The clothes have been donated by people at LMCC and from the community. All donated clothing is washed, sorted, and checked to ensure it is in good repair. We have a wide selection of styles and sizes for both kids and adults. We also carry a small assortment of other items, depending on what has been donated. We have special items at different times of the year, such as school supplies in the fall and coats and hats in the winter.
Who is the clothes closet for?
The clothes closet is open to anyone who needs to come. We want everyone to feel welcome to come and get the clothing they need.
Where and when?
We will be open the first Saturday of every month, from 11am- 2pm, right here at LMCC, 6290 State Route 7, New Waterford, OH, 44445. For directions, CLICK HERE. We will be using the lower/side entrance to the church building, so look for a blue door on your way up the driveway (just follow the signs!).
***Due to the first Sat in July falling on the 4th, we will open on the second Saturday, July 11th. We will resume our normal schedule in August!***

is there a limit on how much clothing each person takes?
Yes, we do limit the amount of clothing for each person, so that we can serve as many people as possible. Each person who comes in will be provided a bag to fill and take with them. If you have a need for more bags, please speak with one of our volunteers, and they will help you.
What if you have an immediate need?
We can provide care packages of clothing and some essentials to families who are in immediate need, or who have suffered a tragic event such as a house fire. We can deliver these items if needed, and we can provide these items when they are needed, rather that waiting until our monthly opening. If you or someone you know is in immediate need, please contact us with the details by filling out the form below.
How can you donate?
We are always accepting donations of gently worn clothing, coats, and shoes. These can be brought to the church building before church services, which are on Sundays at 8am, 10:30am, and 6pm, and Wednesdays at 7pm. Donations can be dropped downstairs, at the room across from the foot of the stairs. There is a sign that says "Donation Station". Or, just stop at the Welcome Desk and someone will help you.
How can you help?
We are always looking for people to help sort and fold clothing during the month, and to help out with setup, assisting guests, and cleanup on days when we are open. If you'd like to help, just fill out the form below and our ministry leader will be in touch!
