Mercy Closet

We serve foster children in Hampton Roads by providing high quality clothing, shoes, and necessities at no cost.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Sorting Clothes
    • We have donations coming in on a daily basis. We need volunteers to come to the closet once a week to sort through the donations and hang and store the wanted items and bring the unwanted items to a local thrift store or donation box.
  • Meeting with Families
    • After a family has submitted an application and has been approved, they will need someone to meet them at the closet to help them pick out items. This is a position that will require flexibility based on the times that a family and volunteer are both available. Having several volunteers with varying times that they are available gives us the opportunity to have more availability to our foster families to get needed items as soon as possible.


All donations are used to purchase new socks and underwear as well as any other necessities that our families may need that we don't currently have in the closet.
