3rd Community Closet & Community Clinic Event

Updated: 6 hours ago

Donations are being accepted at the Itaewon Global Village Center on behalf of The Foreigner & Immigrant Virtual Community Center, a group dedicated to supporting foreigners and immigrants in need. Donations can be dropped off in person.


This group (the Foreigner & Immigrant Virtual Community Center) was founded in response to the significant demand for aid in immigrant and foreign communities since 2020. Their goal is to fill gaps in support and act as a safety net for those in our community who require assistance.


Please note that donations will be accepted only until May 24th (Fri) 5:00 PM. And all your donations will be part of the upcoming Community Closet Event (kindly scroll down to read about the upcoming event):


On May 25th (Saturday), the Itaewon Global Village Center and Foreigner & Immigrant Virtual Community Center in Korea will be hosting a “Community Closet (무료 나눔 장터): Sustainability Market Day” in the afternoon from around 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM. You are welcome to bring in items for donation from today until 5:00 PM of May 24th (Fri). The following day (May 25th), there will be a ’free market’ where those needing particular items can choose from the available items. You can choose different items at NO COST. While everyone is welcome to take any available items, please take only what you need. The donated items are for those who truly need them, so reselling the items is discouraged.


This activity is a great opportunity for those who may be struggling to obtain necessary items and could greatly benefit from these donations, and offer others a philanthropic way to get rid of unused items sitting around in a way that promotes sustainability. Leftover donated items will be sent to the Goodwill Store.  


Please bring your own bag when you come for the event.

This day, everyone can get a free medical check-up for internal medicine (내과). Please note that this will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Check-ups will start at 1:00 PM on May 25th (Saturday) and will end at 3:00 PM. Please don't come later than 3:00 PM because we won't be able to accommodate you.
