We typically do not take clothing or sweaters because we would just be overwhelmed and we don't have the space. There are many who would take the clothing items and make it available to homeless people. I know that all the organizations are struggling with space as well, but there are plenty of groups who take the clothing. It is okay to donate clothing to those who come and pick them up. Sure, they sell the clohing, but it goes to a good cause. Why do we care where our cast off clothing goes?
