COMMUNITY CLOTHES CLOSET INC
July 29, 2010

This is a wonderful organization run by an excellent director and board. Clothing is donated by individuals and companies and is provided at no cost to clients referred by other nonprofits. Clients may come twice a month to "shop" for their families. Special event clothing is provided for weddings and quincienerras. One complete professional outfit, including underclothes and jewelry, is provided for job interviews. Once a job is obtained, 3 more complete outfits are provided. In the late summer there is a "Back to School" event w/ new outfits, shoes and school supplies for students.

Be VERY careful before giving money to this organization. You will be swamped by mail and they do not honor requests to be removed from mailing lists.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My relative made multiple donations to this organization to different projects of theirs, all related to the interests of senior citizens. We suspect this outfit makes a lot of its money selling mailing lists because we are swamped by mail.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

eliminate it entirely. I suspect all the positive reviews are from employees.

More feedback

retire all officers to Boca Raton

Ways to make it better...

this outfit did not exist

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Postal laws preventing scams
