This free exchange has various sizes of clothing for babies and tots as well as toys, cribs, strollers or whatever you might need for the little one. If it isn’t there this week, it might be next week so keep checking back to see what has come in.  You can also drop off your goods when they are outgrown for another to use.

There is also clothing for adults as well as small housewares and linens as donated. 

Our name "Lydia's Closet" comes from the references to Lydia in the New Testament.  She was a woman who dealt in purple cloth, a luxury product in ancient times, and was a worshipper of God.  She is remembered for her generous hospitality to the Apostle Paul and Silas, opening her home when they were released from prison.  Lydia's Closet is an expression to our community of that same hospitality.

Our purpose is to encourage you, not only by providing you with some of the necessities of life, but also to allow you to experience the love of Christ. Volunteers are invited to assist. 

Another service for you is the Christmas Gift room.  You can choose gifts that have been donated for your family members at Christmas time.  This takes place late November, early December at the Food bank events as donations allow.
