• Free Clothing for Duluth Students

    Winter Coats

    Free clothes for Duluth school children in early childhood thru fifth grade who are in need. We outfit your child for school - gym shoes, socks, underwear, school outfits and winter outerwear, including boots. All donated locally for local children, we have both new and good quality used items. We serve by appointment only so apply early in the school year for best results. You are welcome to return in spring for more shoes and spring clothes.

    How can I help?

Talk to your friends and family

Pass the word! Families are eligible to participate if they are unable to buy the clothes their children need. We do not have set income guidelines. Talk to your school social worker or family advocate about your situation. They will help you with the required referral form. Most of our families are eligible for free lunch or have some special need - fire, job loss, recent move, military callup, or ?

Get a referral

Kids Closet accepts referrals from school personnel. Call your child's school and ask the secretary to tell you who the person is in that school that refers to Kids Closet. Contact that person (phone call is fine) with your information, including all of your children in grades from Head Start to fifth grade, even if they are in more than one school.
