I have some ladies business clothes/nice casual clothes I have not worn for a few years that I would like to donate. They are all nice quality and in good condition. They would be great for people needing clothes for an interview or newly entering the workforce.

Any suggestions?

you could always donate to the battered women's shelter --- they do not sell their donated items for a profit like goodwill or salvation army --- the women's shelter has 2 sides to it, an emergency side for women to get needed items when they come in with literally nothing but the clothes on their backs --- i would imagine many of these women have jobs that they have to get too so they would appreciate the business clothes ---

just an fyi --- the battered women's shelter will take anything, clothes, kids toys, housewares, home decor, home furnishings, etc...once the women and kids are set up and on their own they can come back to the shelter and "shop" for free in the shelter --- they have it set up like a little store with shelves and aisles where they can shop for their new lives, away from their abusers...

the shelter is on McCullough (sorry, i don't have the actual address) --- we donate all our items here and it is always very much appreciated --- drive around back for drop off...

also, the items they cannot use for whatever reason are given to area churches for their homeless drives...

Dress for Success is another worthy cause.

Dress for Success was my first thought.

Good to know!! In the future, I'll keep them in mind when donating.

You could always look into donating to the Medina Childrens Home. I know they will come and pick up the items as well.
