Clothing Students Receive
Each semester (2 semesters per school year), students are able to shop for 10 tops, 10 bottoms, 2 outerwear items (coats, jackets, or hoodies), 5 pairs of brand-new socks, 5 brand-new underwear, and 2 pair of shoes.
These items do not have to be selected in one shopping visit — families may shop within the same semester until all items have been chosen. All clothing items selected are FREE. All students residing within LISD boundaries are able to shop with us.
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.
