Donations Offer Veterans Direct Support

Donations of used clothing and household goods made to ClothingDonations.org are resold to thrift and secondhand stores throughout the country, with the proceeds going toward funding veterans’ programs at a hyperlocal level. With the help of the local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Association, for example, more than 30 homeless veterans in Northern Virginia received Veterans Administration Supportive Housing (VASH) program gift cards to assist in finding stable housing during the holidays, and still more received grants to cover sudden financial emergencies.

Clean Out Kids’ Stuff Every Season

Kids grow up fast, and as a result, parents may find themselves with a lot of baby and children’s clothing to donate on a regular basis. The good news is that you can schedule donations to ClothingDonations.org every season for the first few years as babies grow out of those onesies, pajamas and booties. Make sure that there are no big stains or holes, Momtastic says, and the items will clothe other kids as well as help veterans!

Care Packages Appreciated

Have you already made a clothing donation, but you’re still looking for ways to help our veterans? Think about putting together a care package or letter to send to our troops overseas. You can also volunteer at local veterans associations, organizations or hospitals. Contact us if you need help finding volunteer opportunities near you!
