St. Johns Community Clothing Closet


The community clothing closet is a free resource to North Portland community members. We have clothing for infants to adults, shoes, coats, purses, new undergarments and some accessories for all genders in a wide range of sizes. All community members in need are welcome to shop with us and take home 20+ free items each visit. 

The #4, #16 and #75 Trimet bus lines serve the downtown St. Johns neighborhood within easy walking distance of our office, which is across from Signal Pizza.

Our clothing closet is open for shopping twice per month. We are open on the:

1st Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. AND
3rd Thursday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

*Note - if the 1st or 3rd Thursday happens to fall on a holiday, we will not be open.
