Sure it’s mid-December and that’s definitely rain out there, but don’t be fooled. It’s winter time, and with winter comes the inevitable turning of the wardrobes. Clothing donations surge around this time of year as folks come across puffy coats and wool socks they haven’t worn since the early aughts. If you’re anything like my family was, you haul out the hefty bags and fill ’em til they’re brimming with long-neglected and outgrown sweaters and pants, leaving the bags on the sidewalk for Goodwill to pick up or dropping them into local, mysterious donation bins.
What if there’s a more intimate and efficient way to donate clothes to families in need? Would you do it? If you could know that your old clothes were immediately going to families and individuals this winter and that you were helping to strengthen your local community and its causes while going through the same annual routine, wouldn’t you want to?
This year, before you drop yours and your family’s old coats, sweaters, socks, and scarves into the mystery bins or leave them in they alley, consider visiting us and telling us what you have to give. The two minutes it takes to fill out our easy online donation form will be worth it.
We’ll promptly respond with a suggested match – a local organization that serves local low-income and underserved children, families, and individuals. Many times, the organizations will be able to pick up from you directly. Once picked up, you know that your donating clothing will directly benefit the organization’s clients. Easy and immediate.
