Recycle & Donate Today!

Recycling and donating your clothes will keep them out of the trash and in the hands of someone who can give them a second life. Donating your clothes also helps us fund development projects all over the world. Your donation is tax-deductible and you can easily get a receipt on our website.

We accept the following clean items in our yellow bins:

  • Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Bedding, towels, and curtains
  • Sleeping bags
  • Socks, underwear and bras

Even items with minor tears, stains, or imperfections may be donated.

The only textiles we cannot accept are those that are tattered beyond repair, dirty, wet, or moldy. We do not accept yarn, thread-bare items, spools of thread or similar cast-offs.

We also do not accept toys, stuffed animals, furniture or electronics in our collection bins. 

Please do not dump items we can't accept in or around our bins.



Not near a bin and/or have non-textile items that you want to donate, too?

Purchase and print our Give Back Box shipping label and mail up to 70 pounds of used clothes, shoes, books, small electronics, and housewares to our thrift store in Rockville, Md. Learn more here
