God’s Closet

God’s Closet is our clothing pantry that serves the needs of the community. All are welcome to “shop” the closet, and to help us keep it running.

Our mission statement: Heeding the biblical commands to care for the poor, to clothe the naked, and to love one’s neighbor as one’s self, and recognizing the call of faith to be responsible stewards and caretakers of an increasingly fragile planet, God’s Closet at First Trinity strives to provide an alternative source for clothing and other goods in the Bridgeport community. The intent of God’s Closet is to provide both resources for those in need in a life-giving way, and a “green” venue for the redistribution and re-purposing of clothing and other goods.

We are currently open to the public on the following days and times:

  • Tuesday – 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
    Meal shared at 5:15 (while supplies last)
  • Friday – 10 am – Noon
    Meal shared at 10:15 (while supplies last)

If you, your church, or your school would like to volunteer time or clothing, please contact us at 312-842-7390 or gcloset@firsttrinitychicago.com. Please review our guidelines.

If you have or are planning to donate and need a receipt, please download our brochure and receipt here.  Donations can be left anytime unless it is raining or snowing. Please do not block the door. If you need assistance unloading donations, there are typically volunteers present on Tuesdays from 10 am until we open at 5.
