Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs


Access to Clothing for All

COVID-19 Update

In the best interest of our customers, clients, staff members, and volunteers, CAC’s Clothes Closet has made the decision to remain temporarily closed. Our store has become one of the highest traffic retail stores in Northfield. For that we are proud and also aware of our social responsibility to make decisions that are best for our community.

This includes in store shopping as well as our ability to accept donations of clothing at this time. 

While we do not know the extent of the closure, we will work to fulfill our mission of providing access to clothing for those in need. 

If you are in immediate need of clothing, please contact the CAC at or 507-664-3550 and we will do our best to ensure your needs are met. Thank you for your understanding and we will keep you updated as we work through these rapidly changing and uncertain times.
