How we help: Distribute FREE clothing based on specific needs to students in grades  K-12 in CNY

serving: Onondaga & Madison County Schools

Clary's Closet, Inc. began when its founder, Alysia Clary saw children at her own children's elementary school in dire need of clothes. She started working with teachers, school nurses and aides, really anyone that needed assistance outfitting students. Before Alysia knew it she was on a mission to help other schools outside of her own. Currently, Clary's Closet, Inc., distributes clothing to several school age children in grades Kindergarten through twelfth grades in Ononodaga County. Based on their individual needs as a student. We provide new or gently used clothing dictated by the student's needs.
