The Closet of the Greater Herndon Area

Volunteers Needed at The Closet of the Greater Herndon Area. Volunteer opportunities are ongoing and many options are available. Contact Jane Anthony to learn more. 

Volunteers are needed at The Closet, a nonprofit thrift shop founded by local church women in response to a growing need in the community. The Closet began operations in 1974 and has grown steadily with its focus on helping low-income families, immigrants and budget-conscious shoppers find quality clothing and household goods at affordable prices. The Closet receives no government funding.

In addition to its low prices, high quality goods, and merchandise variety, The Closet helps needy individuals referred by local social service agencies and have given more than $65,000 worth of clothing and shoes annually in recent years.  Since its inception, The Closet has donated over $2.5 million in grants to local charities, including $350,000 in college scholarships. The Closet delivers its excess goods to communities in the Shenandoah Valley, where they are distributed free of charge to those who need a helping hand.

The closet is located at 845 Station Street since 2000 and is open for sales on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Volunteering at The Closet is fun and makes a true difference in our local community. To volunteer, please click here. Contact Jane Anthony ( with any questions.
