Question Clothing Donations

I have tons of womens clothes in great condition- but no one can tell me who takes donations! I have one request- I need them to be picked up. Does anyone have any suggestions- thanks!

2 question:

1) picked up from where?

2) are they really in great condition? not shmattes? could somebody wear them in dignity?

Did you check to see if there is a Gemach in your area?

I know in Montreal, there are a number of Gemachs for certain "situations."

Jude:
I forgot to mention that I am in Crown Heights. The clothes are in perfect condition- almost new! There are even a couple of things with price tags!

Yehonasan:
I know of a few places that will take clothes- but they won't pick them up. There is no way I can deliver them myself!

ANY IDEAS? Thanks!

There may be some people not associated with a Gemach who would bring the clothes over for you. If I was in Crown Heights, I would offer .

I found someone who is interested in examining the clothes and then passing them on to the appropriate parties. If you'd like, send me a message through the moderators.

EEEK! I'm not very consistant when it comes to checking for posts on the site!
POSHUT- I actually made an appointment for a pick-up with the salvation army. Then I checked their website, and found out that they are an evangelical ******ian org., and they use the profits from their stores to fund their projects. NO THANKS!
JUDE- Thanks! I'll be e-mailing you. . . . !

It is run by frum individuals, and it serves all needy Jews in the NY area. I did some work for them once, they are ehrlicher Yidden.
