The Community Closet, a program of LifeBridge Community Services, helps the disadvantaged of Greater Bridgeport secure clothing, diapers, school supplies and small household essentials. The Community Closet is dependent upon donations from individuals and organizations in the community. These donations are sorted and displayed and given away completely free to needy clients referred by area human service agencies and programs.
To arrange to make a donation, please call Karen Seferi, director of the Community Closet, at (203) 368-5624.
