Even though most of us have a wardrobe full of clothes, there are chances that we only wear fourty per cent of what we own. So the next time you're spring cleaning your wardrobe, we suggest you think about donating them since it's better to give them to folks in need rather than letting them lie wastefully in your cupboard or worse, ending up in a landfill!  Here are six places where you can donate your clothes. 

Share At Doorstep India

This group basically connects you to the local NGOs in the vicinity. All you do is visit their website, a list of all the NGOs in your area will appear and you can schedule a pickup. A convenience fee of INR 199 is charged as the tempo comes to your doorstep.

How to donate: You can book a doorstep pick up from their website wherein you will be asked to fill in your address, inform how heavy your baggage is (choose from light pickup, medium to heavy pickup and collection drive pickup) and pay for them accordingly. Usually, they have some or the other NGO initiative going on so your pick up would be free. Or, you can simply skip it and drop your baggage to their verified NGO drop points.

Wishing Well

Wishing Well collects everything from clothes, shoes, toys to books, magazines and even electronics and ensures they are received by organisations they have tie-ups with. The only criteria they have is that the goods must be usable, safe and clean! Clothes must be washed and not worn out. Electrical and electronic appliances must be in good working condition and toys must not be broken. It’s simple and easy, and, again, you get to help so many!

How to donate: Donors can send them a mail with a description of the goods they wish to donate. These can be collected by them if you are located between Jogeshwari and Colaba. If you prefer, you can deliver the goods directly to the organisation also. For this purpose, they will put you in touch and try and liaise the delivery.

Goonj

Much like most NGOs, Goonj offers a list of dos and don’ts when it comes to donating clothes, which starts with caring for the dignity of those who are less privileged and being mindful of what you are donating.

How to donate: Goonj has centres across four centres across Mumbai where you can drop your required boxes with ease or organise a collection camp with them in your society if you find other folks who are equally interested.

Sneha Sadan

Sneha Sadan is a home for homeless children in Andheri East. Kids are always in need of clothes and food, but it’s also fun to see the expression on their face when they are given an old football jersey that they can wear, given most football players are heroes to them. Apart from this, you can also donate toys, since they love playing in groups.

How to donate: You will have to drop off the stuff at their place. Also, it's much better if you drop them yourself since you will get to interact with the kids.

Green Yatra

Your old stuff can be someone’s gift, and the Green Yatra NGO does precisely that. They organise to collect stuff, be it clothes and other necessary items, from corporate houses, residential housing societies, shopping malls, cinemas, schools, colleges and other places. The items you want to give will be collected, sorted, repaired, sewed, packaged, transported and distributed to rural areas and urban slums.

How to donate: Their clothes collection drive will be resumed from March, 2024 so you can contact their head office and arrange a pick up accordingly.
