Clothing Closet Ministry

“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” Hebrews 13:16

Clothing Closet Ministry

The Community Clothing Closet is our largest in-house ministry. The Clothing Closet has been a part of our church for many years, and through this ministry we serve communities in Berks County and beyond. The mission of BNC Clothing Closet is to provide assistance to individuals and families in need of clothing free of charge.

Clothing Closet Shopping Days and Hours

  • 2nd Saturdays, 10AM-Noon
  • 4th Wednesdays, 5-7PM

Each family can shop free of charge for one bag full of needed clothing items. Bags will be provided by Birdsboro Church of the Nazarene. Items that are high in demand may be tagged with a number limit for what can be taken.


All Clothing Closet items are donated. Donations are accepted every Monday from 9 AM to noon and during shopping hours. We very much appreciate the support of our community! Donations must be brought to the basement door (down the sidewalk near the sheds). Ring the doorbell and someone will open the door to help you. Please do not leave donations at the door. Thank you!
