Each year hundreds of thousands of articles of clothing and household goods are distributed to people in need. The Clothing Exchange opened in 1983, and was renamed the Free Store in 2018. It is primarily operated by volunteers from the community. All items are donated, and all are given away free of charge to those in need.
