Outpost in the Burbs
For years, American Wear has been working with the Outpost in the Burbs charity organization. The team at American Wear gathers new and gently used coats over the year to donate to Outpost in the Burbs. These coats are then distributed to people who need them the most. The Outpost in the Burbs charity is focused on providing a sense of community through things like music programs and a variety of different cultural programs.
Vietnam Veterans of America
The number of veterans that live on the streets is staggering. Since these brave men and women have fought for freedom in our name, we all need to give as much as we can to ensure they are not struggling. The Vietnam Veterans of America is a charity that works to collect things like clothing, food, and money for vets in needs. Some of the clothing that is donated is then resold and the money is used to help vets with things like bills.
A sister charity of Soles4Soles, the Clothes4Soles non-profit organization collects both new clothing from businesses and gently used clothing from individuals all over the world. Once this charity has received clothing, they send it to some of the most impoverished parts of the world. This organization has over 670 locations throughout the United States, which means you should have no problem finding one near you.
Room To Grow
When doing a bit of spring cleaning, you will usually run across a variety of items that you do not need anymore. If you find yourself with household or children’s items that are not going to be used, then the Room To Grow charity will be more than happy to take them off of your hands. This charity is designed to help struggling families in need. When donating unwanted items like baby clothing or toys, you can rest assured it is getting into the hands of a family in desperate need.
The Arc is a charity that accepts clothing, furniture, and other household items to give to families of developmentally and intellectually disabled people. They have a variety of locations spread out around the country. You can visit The Arc website to find out where a drop-off is near your home.
Making a charitable donation is a great way to do your part and feel good about yourself. Choosing the right charity to donate to may take some time, but it will be worth the effort you invest.
