Clothes need to be Donated!

I have some right now, bags, and i want to know where i could go this time of night to drop them off or something? I was thinking of just going downtown and dropping them off near the star of hope where the bums sleep? Is that legal?! Any suggestions?

Walmart usually has a dumpster outside where you can drop them. Just don't give them to Goodwill

Yes a clothes dumpster, I'm not sure which organization they go to but they're usually out in the middle of the lot somewhere.

I know of churches on the Northside that could use it.
Especially, my childrens ministry just took a tour of our 'open closet' ministry that serves the houston area, but this church is up in the woodlands. Can be dropped off anytime.
Star of hope does do a lot of incredible work and they need contributions all the time. A homeless ministry we ran a few years ago was 'fazed out' slowly cause Montgomery migrates their homeless to us, and so on, so on until star of hope and other church organizations seem to receive the largest amount of people in need.

From what I've seen, there are more 'unfortunate' individuals who guinuenly go to star of hope over the ones who unfortunately looking to just live by on their addictions. Sorry to say, yes it is true to confirm many people's believes; but I mentioned this cause many won't offer to people homeless for concern it wouldn't go to anything but instant gratification...

I don't have much more to say then that unless you have any questions... I'll step off the soap box now

I don't know which organization it may be, but some of them actually come to your place to pick up those clothings.

Why do you say not to donate to Goodwill?
I thought they were the same as Salvation Army - not for profit, right?

goodwill makes hella profit and most of the donated clothes end up being sold by the truck load to overseas buyers. I would rather a homelss family HERE get them than being SOLD to another countries citizens.

If they are women's suits you can donate them to the womens shelter
the houston area women's shelter www.hawc.org
or to dress for success
www.dressforsuccess.org

or to the battered shelter for women and children (there is one is Rosenberg-don't remember the name but it is off of Hwy 90).

This was a good idea. I thought of it myself to. They were mostly womens clothes my mother didn't need anymore and wanted me to do something with. Thanks for all the suggestions folks!

NON-Profit organizations do make profit; but the profit is not a gross.

Example, every administrator who 'requires' full time work decides their own pay in a non profit organization. So though there's no profit, organizers are still getting paid for the work of donations from others.

Churches use volunteers to work their services. All these records are available for public review for any non profit organization: all employee payroll, expenses etc for each organization.

FYI
