Out of The Closet
The blog seemed a little sparse of late, so I thought I’d chime in on something cool I found. My closet has been literally bursting of late, and I was looking around for places where I could donate some of my old clothing. Aside from the local Goodwill and Salvation Army drop-offs, I also found this cool group of stores called the Out Of The Closet Thrift Stores. You can donate anything from furniture to clothing (They won’t accept mattresses and water beds though), and all proceeds from the sales go to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
The process seems quite easy. You can either drop off clothes or smaller items at one of their many Bay Area locations (They also have Los Angeles locations), or arrange a free pick-up for larger items. You may also get a tax deduction, which is nice. Several stores even provide free HIV testing.
