Clothes Donations

    Hi,

    Not sure if this is the right forum so mods please feel free to move as needed :)

    I have a lot of clothes and shoes that are a bit too small for me now and I would like to know where the best place to donate them would be. I thought about the St Vincent de Paul but it looks like they just sell items to raise money and I can't stand the idea of some bargain hunter snapping them up. I want the clothes to go directly to people who will get some use out of them.

    Any ideas?

    Try do you own local research and you won't be long finding out the way each charity-shop operates with what's brought in for re-sale :)

    It might be worth contacting you local homeless shelter or maybe a local woman refuge. They might take them.

    I did, I couldn't find anywhere that actually takes clothes and gives them to people in need.
