We’ve all got clothes that we don’t wear anymore. It could be the shirt you stopped wearing when college ended or the denims that don’t fit anymore. Whatever it is, you know you’re hoarding something that’s of no use to you. These clothes could be the reason for someone’s unmatched joy.

So, do a good deed today and give away the clothes you don’t use anymore. If you want to donate your clothes to someone in need but don’t know how to go about it, go through this list:
