The Leander ISD Council of PTAs Clothes Closet is owned and operated by the Leander ISD Council of PTAs and community volunteers. The purpose of the Clothes Closet is to provide gently-used school clothing and brand-new underwear and socks to our students residing in our school district. We have clothing for grades pre-K through the SELF 18+ Program (sizes 3T-4X for all genders). The only qualification for families to shop at the Clothes Closet is that their student reside within the Leander ISD boundaries. Our program has no income requirements and no vouchers are required.

If you have any questions, contact us at clothescloset@lisdptacouncil.com.

Volunteer Information

Volunteer Sign-Up:

We need volunteers every day that we are open for shoppers, as well as some extra days during the year to sort and help organize our store. Any community member, retiree, parent or grandparent may volunteer with us!

Sign up as a volunteer through the Leander ISD Volunteer system. LISD will perform a background check to screen our volunteers. When registering, indicate that you would like to be a Clothes Closet volunteer. Once approved, we will email volunteer opportunities, or you may view our volunteer schedule within the LISD Volunteer Opportunities Schedule.

If you are already a registered volunteer, click here to view our volunteer opportunities. Volunteers are asked to come in 30 minutes before the shop opens and stay at least 30 minutes after the shop closes, to be trained and to clean up the store before our next shift.

We love our volunteers and we hope you will have a lot of fun volunteering with us!

Current Donation Needs

We accept donations of gently used clothing (in current fashion, meeting school dress code) and brand new socks and brand new underwear in bins outside of our two locations. Please review our donation guidelines. We recycle clothing items that we are not able to use to a local veteran-owned thread recycling organization. The money earned through this recycling organization helps to fund our program. We are always in need of brand-new socks and underwear. We also have an Amazon Wishlist, and purchased items will be delivered directly to us.

**New** We are set up as a charitable organization with AmazonSmile. If you would like to support us at no additional cost, add PTA Texas Congress Leander ISD Council as your charitable organization. To use AmazonSmile, simply go to smile.amazon.com on your web browser or activate AmazonSmile in the Amazon Shopping app on your iOS or Android phone within the Settings or Programs & Features menu.
