To help families facing hard times, the Gladstone Ministerial Association teamed up with Gladstone Schools to create a community clothes closet at Gladstone High. The site serves youths, providing clothing and shoes for babies, kids, and teens.

Open September through mid-June.
Location: in a portable classroom on the north side of the Gladstone High campus, at 18800 Portland Avenue. For easy access, turn right on Nelson Lane (the first street north of GHS) and turn in at the fire lane.
The group needs a volunteer team to staff the facility for two hours once a month. For more information, email coordinator Becky Speulda.
