Where To Donate Your Clothes?
Wondering where to donate clothes?
We have some recommendations that will help you to do it easily.
1) If you’re looking at something, and you’re like, ‘this really deserves to go in the trash, but I don’t want it to go into the landfill,’ instead of donating it to a nonprofit — put the burden on a corporation. Give lower-quality garments to a clothes brand like H&M, which has a buy-back program that takes all clothes of any brand or condition.
2) If you don’t know what to do with your new or gently-used bras, you can donate through Free the Girls. This nonprofit gives the bras to sex trafficking survivors in El Salvador, Mozambique, and Costa Rica to sell in second-hand markets so the women can become financially independent. Find a drop-off location near you.
3) Find local clothing donation organizations in your city
Google is your friend here. Search for churches or local nonprofits that give clothes directly to people in need. You can also visit the website charity navigator, which evaluates over 9,000 of America’s nonprofits on their financial health, accountability, and transparency.
Some of the most common charities that accepted clothing and goods donations might have limited pickups or drop-offs, depending on the current COVID-19 conditions in the area. Check the website for your region to get full details on whether (and what) your favorite charity is accepting.
4) Seek out refugee groups.
Groups that work with refugees often outfit them with clothing and household goods to help them get started in their new home. Reach out to your local organization to see if they’re accepting donations.
