Teen Clean Closet partners with local businesses and community members to provide a safety net for children in the area by providing new toiletry and hygiene items.
Royal Oak, MI - Teen Clean Closet is a nonprofit community resource, which takes donations of new toiletry and hygiene items and distributes them to children in our community who are in need.
Teen Clean Closet was inspired when Erica McEvoy saw the need in her community and put out the call for support. Kim Johnson answered that call and soon a partnership was created.
Together, with the help of family and friends, using social media, they have been able to grow their vision. Teen Clean Closet has established mini closets in our local middle school, high school, community high school, The Boys and Girls Club - Royal Oak, our local YMCA (Royal Oak) and three elementary schools. Additionally, they are an on-call resource for Open Hands Food Pantry, as well as a contributor to Blessing in a Backpack- Royal Oak.
Teen Clean Closet is always looking for businesses and civic groups who would like to join them on their journey to be sure the children in our area have what they need to be clean and confident. Teen Clean Closet strongly believes that this will help boost self esteem and social confidence.
