Commonpoint Queens Hosts Free Clothing Boutique At Bay Terrace Shopping Center

Commonpoint Queens is hosting the Commonpoint Closet, a free clothing boutique at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center, 23-92 Bell Boulevard in Bayside, November 28 – December 2. The Commonpoint Closet will empower young professionals on their road to economic independence through professional attire to help them enter and thrive in the workforce.

“The Commonpoint Closet is a free clothing pantry where men and women in our workforce and summer internship programs can get the professional attire they need,” said Danielle Ellman, CEO of Commonpoint Queens. “The pandemic has also taken a horrible toll on many to the point where having appropriate clothing for a job interview cannot be taken for granted. The clothing is one step of the supportive services we provide for each person to become their best, most empowered self.”

Commonpoint Queens has significantly expanded its employment services through the opening of the Jack and Shirley Silver Hub, a new social service center in Elmhurst, providing job placement assistance, vocational training in the allied health, culinary, and technology sectors, ESOL and HSE classes, social services, and access to food in partnership with UJA Federation of New York. All clients of the Hub and workforce program participants will have priority access to the Commonpoint Closet.

“Commonpoint Queens is incredibly grateful to our generous sponsors including Cord Meyer for donating the storefront.”

Commonpoint Queens is a social services organization that meets the diverse and evolving needs in the borough of Queens —a place where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to find support, access opportunities, and build connections to the community throughout their lives.
