The motto of the Ellsworth Community Closet, located at 25 Eastward Lane is Neighbors Helping Neighbors...The Way Life Should Be. They are holding their 2nd Annual Back to School Shopping Event and Free Meal on Thursday, August 16th from 5-7PM but to make it a success, they need your help!

The Ellsworth Community Closet will be putting all of their new (with tags) items out, plus they will have lots of kids clothing that have been gently used. They will also have clothes for moms and dads as well. Fees at the Community Closet are simple.. The first 10 items are by donation and then each subsequent item is just $1.00

They are accepting items of clothing, shoes, school supplies (new or gently used) and monetary donations to help them purchase some of these items.

They also need food donations so they can provide a free meal during the shopping event. They are accepting donations from local restaurants, individuals and monetary donations as well so they can purchase whatever is not donated. They would like to have all donated food items no later than 4:30 on Thursday August 16th. If you are willing and able to donate food items, please comment on the Facebook Event Page, so they know what is coming.
