Martha's Closet

Thank you for coming to our Lifehouse Martha’s Closet and Career Closet website page.

On August 9, you will have the opportunity to bring ANY items to the garage at Forest Park, or to the truck located at the Cedar Canyon Campus between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.  All of these donations will be picked up and be a huge blessing to United Methodist Mountain Mission.  Questions?  Email Sherrymyersfw@gmail.com.
On this date as well, if you have any of the following items, please hand them separately to a volunteer for Martha’s Closet:
Size 24 month – 2T boy’s summer clothing (If you have these sizes, please message Martha’s Closet or reach out to a clothing ministry volunteer. The need is immediate!)
  • New packages of undergarments
  • Washed and nearly new socks
  • Jeans and shorts – any gender – any size – especially men’s 28-36 waist, and 32 length
  • Small and medium t-shirts for adults
  • Shoes in near perfect condition
  • Towels/Sheets washed and ready

Martha’s Closet is a referral based ministry that provides clothing to those who are in need. Guests must be referred by an agency/church/school.

Due to Covid-19 we have made changes to our current outreach clothing ministry to put in place safety precautions for our clients and our volunteers. We are currently not open for clients to come and shop. We are, however, taking emergency referrals from schools, churches and agencies. Clothing will be pulled and caseworker(s) will be contacted for a day/time to pickup at our Lifehouse Forest Park campus. The form has changed to provide us with the necessary information needed to pull clothing accurately. When referring a client please fill out all the information for each family member using their first and last names and add any pertinent client information needed. Thank you!


About Martha’s Closet

In 2017 we made a major shift in our Clothing Ministry. We moved our Clothing Ministry to a new location and formed a partnership between formally Forest Park UMC and Huntertown UMC.

Martha’s Closet is a referral based ministry, that provides clothing to those who are in need. Guests must be referred by an agency/church/school.

Following completion of the referral form you will receive confirmation prior to our next open date.

 

Volunteer Information

Has your schedule changed?  Can you serve in any of these ways:

1.  Tag the size with masking tape on shoes and pants (from home)
2.  Organize clothing in Martha’s Closet or Career Closet (days/times flexible).
3.  Pull orders for guests as referred by area agencies, churches and schools.
Our “open” hours for our volunteers only are Monday 9-1 and Thurs 12-3.  Carpooling from Huntertown may be an option as well.
Of course, there would be training, there would be someone with you, and we are following really good social distancing measures.  if you would like to learn more, contact cmvolunteer@lifehouse.com
