The Clothes Closet nonprofit celebrated its re-opening at a new location at 1018 Green Street with a ribbon cutting and showing from supporters.

Visitors toured the newly refurbished space, which will be operated by Rockdale Emergency Relief with volunteer and program support from Growing Discoveries Ministries.
