Where to Donate Outgrown Clothes Near You

Where to Donate Outgrown Clothes Near You

September 07 2023

One of the many to-do items on our back-to-school list is buying new clothes for our growing kiddos. To make way for new clothes, worn-out and outgrown clothes often end up in a trash bag or shopping bag with an undetermined destination. 

Before you drop off those items at a for-profit resale shop or leave them on the curb for free pickup, consider donating them to a local nonprofit. Many charitable organizations in the area run resale shops of their own, with proceeds going right back into their programs to help your neighbors in need. Are you worried that your items might be too worn out to be reused? Many nonprofits will gladly accept such articles and recycle them for cash! It's a win-win.

Check out this list of nonprofits near you and make plans to drop off your items this week.


Clothed by Faith

CBF carefully selects, lovingly packages and proudly distributes one week’s worth of gently used clothing and shoes to those in need in Houston and the surrounding areas. While their task is to supply clothing, their mission is to provide dignity for children and adults in need of the confidence and comfort fresh clothing can provide. To learn more about Clothed by Faith, visit their website or call 281-676-8837.

Fort Bend Women's Center

FBWC's mission is to assist survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children to achieve safety and self-sufficiency, while striving to prevent violence against women. Their goal is to guide survivors as they heal from their abuse. FBWC equips them with the emotional, psychological and practical skills and resources to create a hopeful, safe, independent life free of abuse. When a survivor and their children arrive at Fort Bend Women's Center, many times, they only have the clothes on their back, much less items they will need to begin rebuilding their lives, free of abuse.
