United Way of Greater Yankton’s The Clothing Closet program offers community members who are struggling to make ends meet the opportunity to receive free, quality clothing in a dignified, welcoming space.

To help prepare youth for a successful school year, and to provide adequate and appropriate clothing, The Clothing Closet will host a Back 2 School Days shopping event on Aug. 18-20.

• Youth from Kindergarten to High School will have the opportunity to shop for clothing by appointment only. Please call United Way at (605) 665-6766 to schedule shopping times.

• Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

• United Way has implemented social distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and shoppers. Both shoppers and volunteers will be screened upon entry and required to provide and utilize a face covering.

The Clothing Closet’s Back 2 School Days shopping event is open to all school-aged children in need of clothing at 203 E 3rd Street, Yankton. Vouchers from outside agencies are not needed for families to participate, however pre-scheduled appointments are required.
