I am new to the area and I have 4 children, so I am blessed with plenty of clothes. I would love to donate these clothes to someone, or an organization that doesn't charge people for used clothing. If anyone can tell me where to take them, or whom to call for pick up I am sure it would be appreciated by someone who needs some clothing.
Thanks, Renee

I use Amvets. They do not make a profit! If the wait for pick up is to long for you, you can drop of in the Burlington Coat Factory parking lot, on 159th st. There is a white truck there everyday. Not sure of there times.

I took a lot over to the Purple Heart/Vietnam Veterans place over on the Midlo turnpike. Go in the office and you get a donation ticket you fill out the amount. You can deduct up to $500 with out have items appraised.

They just cut your clothes into rags and sell the rags. Vets get 3 cents on the dollar.
