EXTON, PA — The Wardrobe, a non-profit organization committed to eliminating clothing insecurity, is hosting its Open Wardrobe Family Day on Thursday, December 14. The event, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will provide free adult-sized clothing, children’s hats, and coats, along with additional family resources to those in need.

In the spirit of expansion and accessibility, The Wardrobe has also announced two additional locations in partnership with Wings for Success in Chester County. This initiative is part of a monthly program that allows participants to receive free clothing without an appointment.

The Open Wardrobe will be accessible at both Wardrobe locations in Upper Darby and Philadelphia, as well as at Wings for Success locations in Kennett Square and Exton.

Participants are required to RSVP through the organization’s website to access the services.

This year, The Wardrobe celebrated serving its 100,000th client. The organization outfits 5,000 people annually, with support from over 200 community organizations. Each year, The Wardrobe upcycles over 200,000 pounds of gently used and new clothing, providing a stable source of quality clothing for its participants.

The Wardrobe, formerly known as The Career Wardrobe, was established in 1995 and has locations throughout the five-county Philadelphia region. The organization encourages the community to support its mission by donating and shopping at its Philadelphia and Delaware County locations.

For individuals in need, The Wardrobe offers an Open Access program to receive necessary clothing at no cost. More information on how to get clothing or sign up as a Community Partner is available on the organization’s website.
