Dream Closet Mankato Officially Announces Next Free Shopping Event
MANKATO, MINN. — Dream Closet, a recognized student organization at Minnesota State University, Mankato, has officially released the date of their next expense free shopping event. The Dream Closet team will be hosting their free shopping event at Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Centennial Student Union Ballroom on Sunday April 23rd from 2:00p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The Dream Closet team has been actively collecting clothing in boxes around the Mankato area for this event. The team has boxes at Wow!Zone, Coffee Hag and the YMCA. They have been accepting men, women’s, and children’s clothing, shoes and accessories. “My favorite part about the event is that everyone is invited. When someone approaches me and asks me where to pay for their clothing, I get to tell them that it is all free! The look on their faces are priceless,” said Founder Kylen Feltes.
Guests are encouraged to allow Dream Closet personal shoppers to guide them through all of the clothing to help them find what they are looking for. Other attractions at this event include face painting and a craft for kids! “Truly was just like a dream”, said a guest at a past event.

About Dream Closet
Dream Closet was founded in November 2013 by Kylen Feltes. At that time, Kylen was a junior attending Minnesota State University, Mankato. She realized the need for clothing and reached out to the YWCA for assistance in implementing her idea of a free shopping event. With the help of the YWCA, and many others, the first event was held in December of 2013, with great success.
What was, initially, intended to be a Holiday event became realized as a seasonal need for the community of Mankato. Dream Closet events are currently being held every Spring and Winter for the entire community of Mankato to enjoy. The events are run solely on donations from the community. The Dream Closet team is passionate about providing confidence, compassion, and community.
