Camp Cupboard and Closet
Where everything is free
Serving the neighborhood
Camp Cupboard and Closet is a ministry of Washington UCC that has been operating for over thirty years. Entirely volunteer run, the Store, as locals call it, is a dependable, consistent resource for those in need. Director of Camp Cupboard and Closet, Ann Osterfeld, says:
There are a lot of senior citizens down here that I know are getting the minimum social security and have to pay for rent hospitalization and other expenses. They can’t make it on what they have. If we closed down, I don’t know where they would go.
Where dignity matters
People who come to Camp Cupboard and Closet are able to shop for the items they need, be they food, clothes, toys for the kids, or a paperback to pass the time. The store provides food for between 200-300 people each month. It is a ministry that makes a difference in the lives of people.
