The Shepherd’s Closet is a free clothing ministry for all in need at Trinity United Methodist Church. Shoppers MUST wear masks both over your mouth and nose at all times inside the building and the number of items received is limited to five per person onsite from each household.
Volunteers staff the shop during regular hours. The shop is open every week as follows with the exception of closures for special occasions: Wednesdays, noon to 3 PM; the first and third Thursdays of each month from 6-8 PM; and the second and fourth Saturdays from 9-11 AM. Donations of “gently used” in-style clothing—especially children’s and teens—are encouraged during shop hours and may be placed on the cart outside. We accept clothing for all shapes and sizes, though inventory varies throughout the season dependent upon quality donations.
Shepherd’s Closet opened in February 2004 in response to a community need for no-cost clothing. We do not require financial screening. Monetary donations accepted, but not expected. We generally serve 30-100 people each week, most from the local area, though shoppers have traveled from Carlisle, Perry County, York County, and the other side of Lebanon for our services.
