"Fill the Closet" Clothing Drive
for Indigent Defendants

The Akron Bar, in partnership with Goodwill, is addressing the needs of indigent clients who are without appropriate clothing for court appearances. Defense counsel will have the opportunity to shop at any Goodwill location and select clothing from the general inventory.

We need YOU to help get this off the ground! As you clean out your personal closet, please consider donating those items to our "Fill the Closet" Drive. Donations should consist of court-appropriate clothing for men and women, dress shoes, dress socks, belts, and ties. You are encouraged to donate only those items that are in a condition that you would be comfortable handing down to family or friends.

The Akron Bar Association and Goodwill are drop-off locations for this drive. Details for defense counsel on how to shop at Goodwill are forthcoming.
