Our History

The vision behind Cleone’s Closet was to create a destination where Airway Heights residents could obtain affordable clothing and free food. Originally launching in 2013, Cleone’s Closet immediately had a powerful impact on the community, helping thousands of area residents and earning the Best of the West Award for non-profits.

With the help of a generous area business owner Cleone’s Closet moved to its new facility in 2018 and with the continual support of community members like you, we provide residents with free food and occasionally clothing and other donated items to help them meet their needs.
