Donating Used Men’s Clothing and Shoes
Clothing and shoes are among the most needed items for those experiencing homelessness. Most donations go primarily to families in need, leaving those who are single (the majority of whom are men) with few options in the way of clothes and shoes. Fortunately, there are many organizations devoted to providing for the homeless and those in difficult circumstances, who accept donations of used men’s clothes and shoes.
Where to Donate Used Men’s Clothing and Shoes
- Salvation Army Family Stores are one of the most popular and well-known options for donating used men’s clothing and shoes. Most Salvation Army Family Stores accept donations in the form of usable clothing, shoes, and accessories. These donations are then sorted and resold at thrift stores, which helps the organization generate funds to support their work.
- Dress for Success is an organization that helps low-income men and women find and keep meaningful employment. They take donations of gently used men’s clothing, such as dress shirts, dress pants, dress shoes, dress socks, and blazers. They also accept donations of professional leather shoes and accessories.
- Goodwill helps people who are underemployed or unemployed obtain meaningful work. They accept donations of gently used men’s clothing and shoes, and these items are then sold in their retail stores to generate funds for their programs.
- Homeless Shelters provide meals, shelter, and other essential services to those living on the streets. Many of these shelters accept donations of used men’s clothing and shoes. Contact your local shelter to find out what donations they accept and where to drop them off.
Taking the time to donate your used men’s clothing and shoes can make a significant difference in the lives of those in need. Not only will you be helping those in need, you will also be doing your part to reduce waste. Donating is easy and can be done at any of the above mentioned organizations and shelters.
