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.

Clothing Closet Hours:

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.

Many thanks to our Clothing Closet sponsor:
