The Fleet and Family Support Center's Loan Closet provides basic household goods to service members and their families who are in need of household items due to PCS relocation. This is a great program that offers various household items. Futons, coffee pots, toasters, vacuums, tables, and chairs are offered free of charge for use by families awaiting the arrival or departure of their personal property shipments. Highchairs, car seats, and playpens are offered for toddlers. To keep the family going, the dish packs round off the kitchen items. A pack includes pots and pans, silverware, plates, cooking/serving utensils, drinking glasses, mixing/serving bowls, etc.
How to Borrow
Equipment will be checked out for an initial period of 2 weeks. If warranted, this due date may be extended in 2-week increments up to a maximum of 42 days. If the equipment is not returned by the due date, the Fleet and Family Support Center will call to remind and then send a confirmation letter to the home address with a copy furnished to the command. If the equipment is still not returned, procedures for restitution will begin. For more information call China Lake's Fleet and Family Support Center at 760-939-4545.
