Many churches had small “clothes closets” but the women felt a combined operation would better serve the needy, in particular the growing Vietnamese refugee community. The Closet began operations in 1974 and has grown steadily with its focus on helping low-income families, immigrants

The Closet is thankful for the opportunity to give back to the community through its grants and scholarships programs. Recently, The Closet recently gave grants to the following non-profit organizations whose work benefits the quality of life of those within the local community:
Herndon Senior Center
Insight Memory Care Center
Kid Power Virginia
Laurel Learning Center (Cornerstones)
Literacy Council of Northern Virginia
Northern Virginia Dental Clinic
The photograph shows a check being presented by Gene Wiley, the board president of The Closet of the Greater Herndon Area, to the Herndon Senior Center in support of classes which improve the mobility and quality of life for seniors.
The Closet wants to thank Roberta Pence for her many years in service to The Closet. Roberta, a member of the Dranesville United Methodist Church, has served The Closet in a variety of capacities over the years. She, and her husband Guy, are soon moving to be closer to their daughter's home, and she will be sorely missed. Roberta has volunteered for many years at the store, as well as being a member of The Closet's Board, Secretary of The Closet's Executive Committee, and chair of The Closet's Publicity Committee which she established. In the store Roberta has supported the linens department, the arts-and-crafts department, and most recently the toy department. For a number of years Roberta has been at the store daily to pick up games and puzzles which she checks and prices at home, then returns them to the store for sale in the toy department. She has also worked other areas in the toy department, including standing in when the rest of the toy department was out of town!
In these pictures Betty Arey and Laura Greenspan are thanking Roberta for her dedication to The Closet in so many areas, including her work with them in the toy department.
The Closet family wishes Roberta and her husband Guy well in this next chapter of her life.
