The Tumwater School District’s Clothes Closet will be open noon to 3 p.m. Saturday at Peter G. Schmidt Elementary School, 237 Dennis St. SE.

The giveaway is open to all Tumwater area families in need of clothes in sizes infant to teen.

No income verification is required. Participants are asked to bring their own bags.

The Clothes Closet usually opens twice a year, and offers gently used clothes that have been collected, sorted and laundered by students in the Life Skills programs.
