Mission

To provide affordable, gently worn clothing, household items, and toys to those who can use them

Purpose

The Community Clothing Center exists to:

  1. Provide gently used clothing and household items and toys
  2. Provide opportunities for people to volunteer to help those in need as is their Baptismal covenant
  3. Give those who wish to donate gently used clothing and household items and toys a place where they can do so easily for the benefit of those in need. This is in line with St. Matthew’s role in environmental stewardship.

Purchases

We accept cash only in payment. We do not permit returns, refunds, IOUs, or layaways. All revenue from the Community Clothing Center is used to support the ministries of St. Matthew’s Church, including contributions to the Goffstown Clergy Association.

Donations

We will be happy to accept donations of clean, good quality, used clothing that is in season as well as functional housewares and clean, gently used toys. We do not accept furniture. We are not a consignment shop. Please leave donations on the tables inside the garage at our store. The garage is open 24/7. Please do not leave donations outside the shop or in the tan bin next to the garage. You may request a donation receipt, available during regular hours, but we cannot assess the value of donations for tax purposes.

Volunteer Opportunities

We rely on over 50 faithful volunteers, including youth volunteers. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us at the Community Clothing Center. If you would like to volunteer, please call the St. Matthew’s Church office at 603.497.2003.
