Where I can I donate my used clothing?

Now that you've spent some time cleaning out your closet, you've probably got a pile of clothes and shoes sitting in your bedroom. Don't leave them there for the next few weeks, let's get them to an organization that can use them!

Below you'll find a list of places that I love to donate my clothing to:

Formal Clothes, Shoes & Jewelry

1. Operation Deploy Your Dress: "We collect new and gently used formal attire to distribute FREE to military & their dependents, helping to offset the cost of attending military balls." 

Operation Deploy Your Dress has a few locations that you can mail your formal wear to! 

2. Prom Organizations: Another option is to Google: Donate Prom Dresses your city name. There are often local organizations who take formal dresses, shoes and jewelry and give them to high schoolers in need of things for Prom!

Business Attire

1. Dress for Success: "The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life."

Dress for Success operates in most states within the USA, and even internationally! There is a search functionality on the website so that you can find the office closest to you.

Casual/Every Day Clothing

1. Vietnam Veterans of America: "The VVA is a respected charity that gives aid to all of America’s veterans, not just those of a particular age group or war.

By donating used clothes, shoes, appliances, and other household items, you help generate funds to take care of the soldiers and service men and women who help keep America safe from harm."

I love donating to Vietnam Vets because THEY COME GET IT FROM YOUR HOUSE. Simply put it on your porch the morning of your pick-up and they'll come grab it all and leave behind a tax form for ya! 

They accept: "Virtually all types of clothing, shoes, and accessories including ladies, men’s, kids, children’s, baby, purses, belts, ties, wallets, dresses, shirts, pants, shoes." 


Besides these organizations, I encourage you to google local donation options in your area. You'll be shocked at how many organizations, churches and schools are in need of clothing donations!
