Where to Donate Your Professional Clothes!

Where to Donate Your Professional Clothes!

Just recently I came to the sad realization that me feet, had in fact, grown.  A whole size.  Add to that a horrible bike accident and recovery – let’s just say comfort is now the number one factor when buying new, larger shoes.

Standing to my knees in shoeboxes of high heels one size too small I didn’t know the best place to donate them so I reached out to my Facebook friends.  Thank you Karen for the Urban League.  Currently located in Sacramento – here is their website:  http://nul.iamempowered.com

Thank you fellow NDB tiger, Aaron for Dress for Success, https://www.dressforsuccess.org, and Wardrobe http://wardrobe.org.

Dress for Success is having an event this Month –  Tuesday, July 25th from 1-4pm at 500 Sutter Street, Suite #218 in San Francisco.  Details can be found here: https://sanfrancisco.dressforsuccess.org/get-involved/donate/  They have a few dates in August too!

I found this article by Closet Factory about donating clothes and have shared it below.  It always feels good to help those in need.  Susan and I have cleared out our closets and are excited to donate our clothes to women in need.  We know – nothing makes you feel better than a pair of great looking and feeling shoes.

Pay it forward,

Sabrina & Susan

Declutter Your Closet: The Best Charities for Donated Clothing

When you declutter your closet, which should be at the top of your list of things to do when considering buying a custom closet, it can be hard to decide what to do with the items you’re parting with. Donating it to charity is the logical response, however, many Americans have thought twice about donating their used clothing after hearing news reports state that a large portion of their donations are shipped to third world countries and sold for a profit. Naturally, people are torn between wanting to help the less fortunate and knowing big business is profiting from their donations.

However, donating your decluttered closet items to charity is still a good idea. It certainly is a better alternative to throwing your once precious possessions in the trash. The trick is to choose a charity that directly distributes your clothing to people in need or if you donate to an organization that sells clothing, make sure that a large percentage of their profits goes directly to charity. Below is a list of organizations that donate clothing directly to people in need. If these charities don’t have a chapter located near you, don’t give up. Chances are, you have a local organization that is doing similar work, so all you need is a little research to make sure your donations go to a good home.

Dress for Success: With national affiliates all over the U.S., this is the perfect place to take all your work clothes and shoes that you no longer wear. Their philosophy is to promote self-confidence and economic independence for disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, mentor support and career development training. The organization distributes your donations to disadvantaged women who need business outfits for job interviews.

Career Gear: This charity does for men what Dress for Success does for women. They provide professional clothing, mentoring and life-skills to help low income men get the clothing and toiletries they need for job interviews. There are several locations on the East Coast and in various parts of the Southern U.S.

Cinderella Project: Here’s where you can take all those old bridesmaid dresses you’ll never wear again. This New York state based organization takes donated formal dresses and gives them to teenage girls who can’t afford to buy a prom dress. There are similar sister projects like this such as The Princess Project in California. Check your local community listings to see if you have a local organization that does the same thing.

Big Brother Big Sister Foundation: This foundation accepts any type of clothing in good condition and all donations go to the foundation’s resale stores. 100% of the proceeds benefit the charity which pairs adult mentors with at-risk kids. You can even schedule a pickup online and they will come get your donation.

Vietnam Veterans of America:
This national non-profit provides support and services for all military veterans returning home after serving and aid for homeless and disabled vets. They accept all types of clothing, shoes and accessories in good condition for children and adults.  Then they sell the donated items in their resale shops with the proceeds going directly to the VVA. They will also come and pick up your donation, which you can schedule online.

As you can see, there are many places to find good homes for the clothing you no longer have a use for. Decluttering your wardrobe closet not only helps you feel good but it can also help others feel better about their lives. Go to our Closet Factory blog for more tips on how to live a life free of clutter.

This was a fun blog – thank you for your help friends – let’s pay it forward.  -Sabrina
