SOUTH COUNTY FOSTER CLOSET
The South County Foster Closet supports and equips children and families touched by foster care.
SOUTH COUNTY FOSTER CLOSET AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
The South County Foster Closet was created in March 2018 when a group of moms in St. Louis, Missouri decided to take a step of faith. They began collecting clothing, shoes, and baby items to be sorted and passed along to children in foster care, free of charge. Since then, hundreds of children in the St. Louis area and beyond have been impacted by this ministry. Our prayer is that God's love would be shared with every child we serve.
I love having items delivered in the rush of new placement, it’s SO helpful and one less thing to worry about.

What We Do
The South County Foster Closet wouldn't exist without the generous support of our community. Donations can be dropped off at Emerge Design Studio, located at 4344 Telegraph Rd. on Wednesdays from 10 am to 7 pm and Fridays from 9 am to 3 pm.
Please note that we are NOT accepting used toys, stuffed animals, and books at this time due to limited space. Other items we are NOT able to take at any time: car seats, cribs/beds, unpackaged underwear, and any items that are stained, damaged, or missing parts.
We are not currently accepting donations. Please consider purchasing an item from our Amazon Wishlist to help us continue serving foster families during this time.
SERVING FOSTER FAMILIES
We are committed to providing stylish, new and like-new clothing and shoes to foster families, free of charge and as quickly as possible. We carry all sizes from newborn to adult. If you are a foster parent or social worker, contact us on our Facebook page or email and let us know the gender, size, and season of clothing you need. We ask all families to show placement paperwork to ensure that our donations support children in foster care. We can deliver in as little as a few days in St. Louis County, City, and Arnold. If you live outside our area, we can meet in South County for pick-up .
We do most of our communication on our Facebook page. Check it out!
