Clothing Assistance

The SWC Cares Closet is a mini-clothing boutique where students can get free clothing free of charge.  Originally an effort of the Academic Senate to offer students interview clothing, the Cares Closet is now part of SWC Cares safety net of programs and offers everyday, seasonal, and special occasion/interview clothing items to students all year long.  

The SWC Cares Closet is co-located with the Jag Kitchen Pantry in  Building 16-Room 104 on the Chula Vista Campus.  Cares Closet Summer hours are Monday-Thursday 10:30am-5pm.

Clothing donations are also accepted at the same location during open hours, year round.  Monetary donations are also accepted and appreciated as we are part of the SWC Foundation.


  • SWC Students with a valid SWC ID Numbers.
  • No eligibility forms or proof of income is required.


  • Come in during our normal operating hours. 
  • Select up to a total of 10 clothing items per semester.  As inventory changes, so may the number of clothing items students can select each semester.
