Giving

At Village Closet, we are a business, but we also believe that giving is a vital part of our lives. We are excited to partner with some amazing organizations both within our local community and around the world.

Take a moment to read about the organizations we partner with, and please consider supporting them in some way if you feel led.  Fundraising opportunities are also available for other local non-profit organizations. Please contact us for more information.

After our 2015 Spring sale, we contributed funds to support La Colonia Village in Guatemala and will continue to support them in the future.  We are partnering with this village to help provide clean water, a church and a school, and improve homes.  We are also helping the families in this village to learn skills to support themselves financially.  You will find some handmade items for sale at the Spring 2016 sale that directly benefit and support these families and their new businesses.  We are excited about this new opportunity to invest in people and share God’s love with those in need.
