A helping hand for high school and middle school students in need.

Angels’ Closet Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization.

The high school and middle school years can be a challenging time for any young person. For one facing financial difficulties, it can be especially trying. Imagine not having the basic necessities — clothing, shoes, socks, toiletries, even underwear — and then trying to fit in and be accepted. It just doesn’t happen.

The needs of these older students have frequently gone unnoticed in the community as the kids try to blend in with their peers and are too private to discuss their situation. Thus, they’re often the forgotten ones when it comes to receiving some much-needed assistance.

Redlands resident Pat Williams was determined to change that. The more she knew, the more her resolve grew to help these kids in any way she could. She began collecting some gently used clothing and then turned around and donated the items to the students in need. But the more kids she helped, the more she realized needed help. And for those of you that know Pat, you know that only made her even more determined to make a difference in these kids’ lives.

Today, Angels’ Closet Charities collects and distributes new and gently used school clothes, formal attire, business attire, accessories and toiletries. Students are referred to our organization through their school counselors, school administrators, or area social services agencies.

Angels’ Closet is proud to have supported and mentored the opening of other clothing closets in the area. Should a clothing closet in a neighboring community better serve a potential client, we will help to facilitate the connection between the student and that clothing closet. We believe every community needs a clothing closet to foster the potential of its youth and support their continued education.


Angels’ Closet is about more than just clothes. It’s helping the kids fit in with their peers and feel better about themselves. Most of all, they shouldn’t be afraid they will be made fun of for the clothes they are wearing, nor should they stay home or drop out of school because they don’t have clothes to wear. Costs have increased significantly this last year. To be prepared for the continuing increase of costs, we are hoping you will help us meet our 15 year Anniversary goal of raising $15,000 to celebrate 15 years of helping the kids who have so little.

To celebrate our Anniversary and to continue to provide the level of service we have achieved, we have set a goal of $15,000 for the next school year. Your gift of $15, $150, or $1500 will help us achieve this goal. Thank you for your continued support.


We are thankful to receive your support through Clothing, Toiletries, Time, and Monetary Donations! Find out more about our needs or give online today!


It is our mission to provide clothing and other necessities to foster, at risk and in need middle school, high school, and college students — this is achieved with the support of the community. It is also our mission to provide financial assistance to help students participate in school social activities such as homecoming, prom, graduation events, senior yearbook, and senior pictures. We believe that by providing this much-needed assistance, we will be promoting a more positive educational experience for all of our student clients.


If you’d like to take a tour of Angels’ Closet, we’d be delighted to show you around — just give us a call at 909-794-7967 or fill out the contact form. We look forward to hearing from you!

Angels’ Closet relies solely upon the generosity of the community for clothing and donations. Without you, we wouldn’t be here or be able to help these students — more than 5,000 to date.
