This organization work from the heart. I have being volunteering there many times from the beginning and I get to see many times people coming for clothes and the warm welcome they received, especially by Shamine Linton, the founder. She make people feel welcome without any difference, can be a homeless person, a person with disabilities, people that sometimes even smell like they have weeks without shower, she made them feel loved and important. They not only go out with a bag of clothes and shoes, she offers extra, food or water if they are thirsty or hungry, and always offers a big smile to them. she always ask if they are anything else she can help with.
Sharia’s Closet is a place of love and kindness.

Hi, I'm a case worker for an asylum-seeking family. I submitted a clothing request two weeks ago, I got an email Sunday with pick up date for today. Will be picking up clothing for the family today, hopefully they get a nice array of clothing.

Sharia's Closet is a great asset to the community. With the increase cost in living families are struggling to meet their basic needs. This is where Sharia's Closet is contributing to releasing some of the stress that comes from not being able to provide basic needs. Not only do they provide those needs but also comfort and hope.

Sharia's closet is such a huge help for the community. I am a Public Health Nurse and have utilized Sharia's Closet for several of the families I serve. Every time I arrive I am treated as if I'm family. This organization has easily become my go to location for donating my clothes because I know they are going straight back into the community to those that need it the most.

I was in search of a local nonprofit to donate (mostly) clothes, but since I had only been in San Diego a few months I wasn’t sure where to donate. I reached out to folks in my neighborhood and the majority of my neighbors recommend Sharia’s Closet. I looked up Sharia’s Closet website and read news articles about them too, and knew this is exactly the type of nonprofit I wanted to give to. I donated 3 bags of clothes and 3 sets of sheets. I had a very informative conversation with the gentleman working the Closet that day, giving me more insight to the work this nonprofit does and the help they always need. I really appreciate that the website is updated weekly with the items most needed. I have a bag of donations in my car now that I will be dropping of this week.
