Campus Clothing Closet
Brief Description of Organization
The Campus Clothing Closet provides Boise State University students with access to good quality, sustainable and affirming clothing at no cost.
Finding clothing to fit body sizes, personal style and expression, varying weather conditions and more can be arduous and cost-prohibitive. The Campus Clothing Closet seeks to bridge that gap while also keeping gently used clothing out of the landfill.
Organization's Community Impact
The Campus Clothing Closet has seen 103 uses since opening on August 23, 2023 and has already distributed over 300 items to students. We anticipate these numbers to continue to grow as word of this resource spreads and seasonal clothing is needed. The Campus Clothing Closet seeks to be a resource for all students, however, we do not have the space or funding to make the Campus Clothing Closet fitting room ADA-compliant, meaning that some students are unable to effectively and comfortably utilize this resource. Additionally, the lack of adequate storage space reduces the usable square footage that would otherwise allow us to expand our clothing offerings.
By awarding this grant, the Campus Clothing Closet can obtain the essential supplies needed to create an ADA-compliant dressing room, ensuring access for a wider range of students. The funding will also enable the purchase of additional storage cabinets, optimizing space utilization within the Gender Equity Center.
