The Release Care Closet 

The Release Care Closet is a volunteer-run resource for children and families involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Our goal is to provide tangible help to families including clothing, diapers, books, blankets and toys, but sometimes have pack and plays, car seats and other needed items. 

 

The Release Care Closet will be open for families to browse on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month from 9am-noon. Items are provided free of charge. If families are unable to attend during open shopping times or have more urgent needs, they may contact fostercare@releaseinc.org.  

Located at the

Better Together Campus

in Building T
3223 N 45th St

Days and times

open for families to browse

First and Third Saturdays of each month from 9:00am to noon.

How To Help

The Release Care Closet accepts only good quality used clothing. We ask that any donated clothing be in style, gently used or new, clean, and in good condition. We want to ensure every youth in foster care receives quality clothing, like we would want for our own children. 

We are always in high need of:
  • New Socks
  • New Undergarments
  • Diapers & Wipes
  • Hygiene Products (ethic hair care products, deodorant, etc.)
  • New Shoes
  • New Duffle Bags
  • Children’s Books
  • Gift Cards (from Walmart or Target preferred)

Often, big blessings are a big jobwe are always looking for individuals or small groups who are ready and willing to volunteer their time sorting and organizing the care closet with us. 

For more information on how to donate or volunteer, please contact Kim Cunningham at kimc@releaseinc.org.
