Clothing Donations

Consider donating gently used items to these non-profits that serve a special niche.

Ever wondered where to give that prom dress your daughter only used once, the running shoes your child has grown out of, or all those baby items that only got used for a couple months?  Well, there’s a non-profit for that!  These niche charitable organizations make sure your items get into just the hands that need them. When you decide to donate clothes not only can you feel good about someone else in need that can reuse them, you can also feel good about helping the planet - instead of throwing your items in the trash, you can prevent them from ending up in a landfill, where they can take years to fully break down, releasing harmful gases into the environment in the process.
