Angel Bear Closet
Located on the grounds of Church of God of San Jose, Angel Bear Closet is a non-profit organization that will provide free clothing to children in need in Willow Glen and surrounding areas. Angel Bear Closet is operated by volunteers and is open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Our volunteers will assist children, along with a parent, who are referred to Angel Bear by churches, schools, our local fire department and other social agencies. We aim to also provide clothing in emergency situations such as fires, a parent’s sudden loss of job, etc. We will make no judgments as to whether individuals or families are qualified to receive free clothing, but will accept all referrals from the above listed agencies.
If you are a staff member at a church, school, police or fire department, or social service agency and would like to refer a client to Angel Bear Closet, you may do so by filling out a Referral Form. You must be personally acquainted with the person you are referring and have first-hand knowledge that the person is experiencing financial hardship.
In order to provide this service, the Angel Bear program depends entirely on the generosity of individuals like you. HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
