Mary’s Closet

Mary’s Closet, a free store for those in need, serves more than 10,000 people per year. We welcome clean, donated clothing and footwear in good condition, as well as sample-sized toiletries, toys, and books. You can help us with our limited storage by donating in-season items.

Located in the basement of Saint Joseph Catholic Church’s parish offices, Mary’s Closet is staffed by a team of friendly, dedicated volunteers who help people find what they need, and make sure donated items are in good condition and properly displayed.

Free shopping visits to Mary’s Closet are limited on a per year basis. A valid ID is required. Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Please call the parish office (970) 482-4148 for more information. Thank you in advance for your help with this important ministry!

    I have several women’s business suits in good condition that I no longer need. Would you have use for this or know someone that could use them. They’re sizes 6-8. If you do please let me know what the best time would be to drop them off. Thank you

      Thank you so much for donating to Mary’s Closet! You gift is a real help to those in need. We accept any clothing item in good condition. Donors may drop off clothing 24 hours a day in our bin, located in our church parking lot behind the parish offices. A second, double bin is also available. Items donated to the double bin go out of state. If we cannot use your item, we will send it to a consignment shop and use the earnings to purchase new underwear and socks for those in need. Clothing may also be dropped off at our parish offices, which are open M – Th, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Fridays 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. We do close parish offices for special events and staff development days, so please call ahead to make sure we will be open. Thanks again for your generosity in helping Mary’s Closet support those in need.

    Does Mary’s closet take furniture? I have a nice coffee table and pretty new tv that I’m looking to give to someone in need. Just don’t have room for them.

    I have 3 gently used sleeping bags to donate.
    Is this something Mary’s Closet accepts and/or can you tell me where to donate them to?

    • Karin Livingston says:

      Thanks for the inquiry! While Mary’s Closet could take your sleeping bags, we typically only work with clothing and toiletries. However, the Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hope might find immediate use for them in their Gear Room. Thanks again!

    I would like to donate some clothing and shoes. Can you let me know when I can drop it off.

    • Karin Livingston says:

      There are bins in our parking lot that can be used to drop off donated clothes 24/7. Thanks for thinking of us!

    Why is Mary’s Closet closing!? It serves so many people and it’s absence will definitely be felt within the Fort Collins Community. Where are its clients supposed to go!?
