Who are the needy??
  • A single Mom, of two school age children, who has recently had her work hours cut-back.  Groceries twice a month will help her provide meals for her children until she finds more work.
  • A Grandmother, retired and on a fixed income, who has taken in four toddler grandchildren – their parents have left town to find work; they have been gone for two months.  She finds the help with groceries and clothes essential in making a secure home for the children.
  • A veteran, elderly and homeless, who is caught in the process of simultaneously applying for benefits and housing.  He visits Interfaith for a chat and basic food for a few days and an occasional clean set of clothes.
Operations - Clothes Closet

What is Tracy Interfaith Ministries’  ‘clothes closet’?  The end product is a ‘store’ where a client or the client-family ‘shops’ for garments, shoes, coats or bedding for those in their household.  However, there are two major phases before the ‘store’ is ready for clients.

1) New or gently used garments, shoes and bedding are received.  Every item is donated by members of the community and local businesses.  Donations are received daily at the back door by volunteers. Donors are provided a receipt.  There is one large room that provides temporary storage.

2) From the receiving area, the donations make way to the ‘sorting’ room – where each week dozens of volunteers inspect each item and are then placed in the ‘store’ areas designated for men, women and children by size, etc.

The “Clothes Closet”, made ready by our donors and volunteers, meets the needs of clients five days a week.

We want to thank all of those who make our work possible; the volunteers who give so much of their time, the donors who give so generously of their cash and all of those who give us food, clothing and household supplies.

It’s a team effort and we’ve got a great team.
