The Clothes Closet has been renamed in honor of Cathy O’Neil who passed away in August, 2016. After Cathy retired as a third grade reading specialist for the Elk Grove Unified School District she founded the Clothes Closet in 1994 and joined forces that same year with Elk Grove Food Closet. Cathy was also a founding board member of the Elk Grove Food Bank Services. Cathy was a pillar in Elk Grove and one of a kind. She was fiercely loyal, humble and intellectually curious. A magnificent bigger than life woman with a giant heart. Cathy was of invaluable help to the Food Bank for almost 25 years. She left a legacy!
