Step back and take a look at your closet. All of those past season must-haves that you only wore a couple times are sitting on the back shelf, replaced with the next up and coming newest style. When it is that your clothes have passed their fashion peak, give them a chance to be enjoyed by someone else, as recycling and donating these items to those in need brings many benefits to all involved.
Veterans and military families are in great need for clothing donations. In 2012, the unemployment rate of veterans was a whopping 9.9%, up 2% of the national average of regular citizens, with 20.4% being veterans between the ages of 18-24.

Of those residents, 39% , or roughly 171,000 people, are children. So how can the average citizen help without breaking their own bank?

Though it may not be fair to say that homelessness has reached an all-time high, it is still a devastating problem throughout the country. The Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that more than 600,000 people at any given night are without a home to go to. For those 600,000 people — a quarter of whom are children — charitable clothing donations go a long way.
Donating clothes to charity truly provides support for those who, for various reasons, cannot help themselves. The homeless are some of the most vulnerable members of our society. Without the kindness of stra

The act of giving provides volunteers with a sense of fulfillment and purpose, including pride.
Like many Americans, you may be looking for a way to show your appreciation and support for military families and veterans, but do not know where to begin or even how to do so. Though charitable donations such as non-perishable food items, household goods and appliances, and clothing donations are an excellent way to start, you may be yearning
