About Us

The Caring Closet is a non-profit organization dedicated to  improving the lives of children grades K-6 in the Hamilton City School District, by providing clothing and basic necessities to those in need. We believe positive self esteem enhances the educational process and we rely on the generosity of our community to help us achieve our goal.

In 2010 The Caring Closet started running out of a single basement. One short year later we outgrew that small space and moved into The Hamilton Business Center. As of October 2012 we have found our new home at 6 South D Street in Hamilton, Ohio…the lovely space above The Bargain Bungalow.The Caring Closet accepts gently used or new articles of clothing, shoes, new packages of underwear and socks, backpacks, new toiletries, and even children’s books! Referrals for packages are submitted by teachers within The Hamilton City School District over a secure network and the orders are put together here at The Caring Closet by our board and volunteers. The privacy of all students and families is respected and is kept in confidentiality. We strive to make your experience with The Caring Closet a great one whether it’s through the volunteer work, the actual referral program, or just our wonderful support system.

It’s safe to say that The Caring Closet and has grown a great deal and we are excited to grow more and more each year. We would love nothing more than to gain involvement whether it’s with volunteers, fundraising events, or even just gaining donations. Help out your local non-profit and truly make a difference in the lives of those children in need!
