The Family Closet

Fredsville Lutheran Church has a new community outreach — The Family Closet.

Anyone in need is welcome to come to the church and select free clothing for their immediate family on the first and third Saturday each month from 9:30 am to noon and every Wednesday from 6 – 7:30 pm. If these times do not work, special appointments can be arranged by contacting the church office at or (319) 989-2065. People interested in serving by helping with The Family Closet ministry should also contact the church office.

Our “For Visitors” Web page offers detailed directions on getting to the church. Doors with The Family Closet signs in the windows are the most convenient ones for entering to get to the rooms with the clothing, but feel free to use any door and go down to the church basement.

Donating to the Closet
We accept donations of new or gently used clothing only for men, women and children. Donated items must be clean with no rips or stains. Donations of new packages of underwear or pairs of socks are welcome. We cannot accept shoes at this time as we do not have enough space to display them.

Donations can be dropped off at Fredsville Lutheran Church, Dike City Hall or New Hartford Public Library.
