The Closet of Greater Herndon is a wonderful place to shop. It supports the needs of community members, and it passes the profits back to the community. Herndon UMC is a member organization partnering with The Closet to serve our community. Here are some opportunities to support this organization.
- Monday-Saturday from 10 am-5 pm, and
- Monday and Thursday evenings, 5 pm-8 pm.
Seniors Only (60+) hours on Thursdays, 8:30-10 am.
Monday-Saturday (excluding Thursdays) 8 am-Noon.
Willing volunteers are needed to sort donations, stock shelves, bag customers’ purchases, and assist customers. The Closet asks supporting organizations to cover regularly scheduled volunteer days.
Upcoming dates are scheduled through the app, bit.ly/HerndonUMCNeeds, and posted on the Connection Corners. If you sign-up through the website, please be sure to look for and confirm your sign up through e-mail (if you don’t do so within 5 minutes, the sign-up expires).
Feel free to email Bill or Betty Arey at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or find out how you can get connected.

- In 2021, the Closet provided $132,000 in grants to 25 local non-profits.
- In 2022, $42,000 in scholarships among 6 different schools (one of which was Herndon HS).
