Best websites for clothing donations

These sites collect and pass on clothes, shoes, and even prom-style dresses and accessories.

ShareYourSoles.org sends donated casual footwear to needy people “from Appalachia to Sri Lanka.” Donated high heels are sold to fund the other shoe shipments.

GiveRunning.org specializes in athletic footwear, encouraging good fitness by handing out used sneakers to disadvantaged youths.

Clothes4Souls.org “cuts out the middleman” by sending donated clothes to business owners in developing countries rather than selling them to an international distributor. The local entrepreneurs “refurbish and merchandise the items themselves.”

WGirls.org “will gladly find a new owner” for any prom-style dress you’re done with. The group makes gently worn frocks and accessories available at boutique-style events for young women who otherwise might not be able to afford their proms.
