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:
•    Tuesdays, 5 to 7 p.m.
•    Fridays, 10 a.m. to noon

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.

During the first hour or so of God’s Closet members of our community share a potluck meal.  All Are Welcome!  For other food resources in Bridgeport, please visit Benton House or Union Avenue Methodist Food Pantry
