Where Can I Recycle Clothes and Shoes?

Clothing & Shoes: The Salvation Army and Goodwill both collect and resell clothing at low prices and use the proceeds to fund their own charitable activities, so donations help make a positive difference on multiple levels. Put clothes in a drop box run by a charity. Donation drop boxes are usually located in the parking lots near stores or shopping centers. You should check beforehand that the charity name on the box is a legitimate one--there are many organizations that use items donated in drop boxes for their own profit, rather than for helping others. Contact local homeless shelters and ask if clothing donations are needed. See if there are any specific clothing items that they need most.
