Clothing Depot

Committee Chair: Lynda Scheel

Serving the Community Since 1964

Over 50 years ago, two dedicated PTA members, Gloria Root and Pat Renwick, founded the Livonia Clothing Depot in the old Newburgh School.  Over the years, the location of this free thrift store has moved several times, finally settling into its current location at Livonia Franklin High School.  Today, the Clothing Depot serves approximately 300 customers a year, focusing on Livonia Public School children and their immediate families.

How to Access the Clothing Depot

Clothing Depot consumers are generally those facing financial challenges, or have recently experienced other unfortunate events.  Consumers are recommended by school staff, such as ESAPs, SAP, ESTs , School Psychologist, Social Workers and other school professionals.

The Clothing Depot Thrives on Donations
