Where to Donate Clothes in Houston

Fall is just about here. Every time there is a change of seasons, it makes you stop and re-asses the situation in your closet. Do you have a lot of clothes just taking up space? Do they even fit anymore? Do you ever wear them? What about shoes and purses? These are all things gladly accepted as donations to charitable organizations across the state of Texas. So Move For Free is highlighting just a couple of those organizations in Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston and Austin in hopes of inspiring you to help a worthy mission.

This week, our focus is on the Houston area. And we want to be clear that we realize there are several great organizations out there doing fantastic work. We ask if you have a non-profit or charity you enjoy working with, please let us know! Leave a comment on this blog, a message on our Facebook page or send us a tweet.
