Tikkun Closet

The Tikkun Closet is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.

CRC reaches out to its neighbors in need year-round through our Tikkun Closet, which is a clothing and food pantry located in the foyer of our building. The items arrive by donation only and the closet is refilled daily. No documentation is needed to use the closet. We only ask that you respect a daily limit of 5 items so that we can help as many people as possible.
