About Closets for Charity:

Styles change, your look changes, and sadly or happily, your size may change. What do you do with all those gently-worn clothes that you no longer wear, but are still so impeccable and gorgeous?

 

Closets for Charity, the brainchild of Natur-Tyme owner Wendy Meyerson, is the answer! During the summer of 2010, Wendy was seeking a way to take her gently-used clothing and put them to good use for the community. Sure, there are many organizations that welcome clothing donations, but Wendy was looking for something more!! She developed the concept of an organization focused on offering used name-brand clothing at a deep discount. But, here is the best part--100% of the funds raised by the clothing sales go to a deserving charity. Closets for Charity was born!

 

We showcase Closets for Charity at various Natur-Tyme events, allowing the public and our customers to buy gorgeous, fashionable ensembles at a fraction of the price they would pay were the clothing brand new. Each time, we offer Closets for Charity, we choose one charity to support with all funds raised from the day.

 

To date, we have raised over $25,600 for local charities!

We’re always looking for gently-used clothing, purse, and accessory donations for Closets for Charity. Some common brands we accept are Chicos, Coach, J-Jill, J-Crew, Jones of New York, Vera Bradley, Banana Republic, Talbots, and more. To inquire about donating, please send an email to closetsforcharity@natur-tyme.com.
