You don't need to give the shirt off your back

When a disaster occurs, many people want to give used clothing to the disaster area. This is ALMOST NEVER NEEDED. A number of relief agencies specialize in providing clothing that is guaranteed clean, appropriate for the season, and sorted by size. Miscellaneous shipments of clothes from individuals often end up turned away. Give your used but usable clothing away regularly to a charity in your area. It might reach a disaster area, or just help a needy neighbor. Or have a yard sale and donate the proceeds to the charity of your choice.
