Clothing Pickup collects clothing and household items which are then sold in bulk
to thrift stores. These stores are all in the USA
Proceeds from the bulk sale provide funding
for The American Red Cross or Paralyzed Veterans of America.
WHY DO THE CHARITIES NOT USE MY ITEMS DIRECTLY?
"Collecting, cleaning, sorting, and repackaging of items such as food or clothing
impedes valuable resources of money, time, and personnel that are needed for other
aspects of our relief operations.”
The stores we work with provide low cost quality items as well as jobs and services
in their community. They empower people to be able to provide clothing etc for their
families and select from a large quantity of quality items so they can not only
find items that fit but are the color etc that they want. Most of the stores carry
over 20,000 garments. Each store provides jobs for over 25 full and part time employees.
