Homeless and disadvantaged teenagers can now shop 'til they drop at a store stocked with clothes just for them.
Saturday marked the grand opening of The Teens Closet on Farrell Avenue in Arroyo Grande.
Inside a small building donated by Compass Health, there's clothes to outfit teenagers in need.
"It's really going to take the stress off of moms who are trying to provide their children, but are struggling financially and aren't able to get their kids the clothes they need for school," said Lisa Ray, of the Children's Resource Network of the Central Coast.
Stylish and free, the clothes are donated by students at Cal Poly and area high schools.
The Teens Closet is managed by the senior residents of the Arroyo Grande Care Center.
"It gives me something to do and makes me feel good inside to know I'm being able to help somebody," said Kathy Prisciliano, a volunteer.
Matthew Lysobey, an adminstrator at the senior home added "The residents are really excited about being a vital and vibrant part of the community again."
Collection bins are set up at Albertson's in Arroyo Grande, and Charter Communications in San Luis Obispo, if you want to donate gently-used clothing.
