A week or two ago, I promised to recap some spots in Chicago that accept used clothing donations! Y’all offered several suggestions of awesome organizations in the area.
My friend Christine connected me to New Moms, Inc., an org that exists to enable, empower and equip at-risk adolescent parents and their children through mentoring and other services, including a brand-new housing facility on the west side. Other Tumblrs mentioned the Salvation Army on Fullerton and the Brown Elephant, a resale shop that benefits the Howard Brown Health Center. Thanks, all!
Consider this post a friendly reminder to donate gently-used clothes to organizations in need. And to not leave your pile of donations at the foot of your bed for four whole months, like I did.
