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.
