Where to donate gently used clothes, toys, books?

Hi All,

Besides dropping the stuff at Salvation Army, could anyone please share where else we could donate our used stuff to?

TIA

Have you think of donating to Overseas.

I happened to stumble on this Charity Organisation -Uday Foundation in India- http://www.udayfoundationindia.org

They are having a Drive :

Maybe you would like to think about it.
I have checked to Courier a parcel to India around 10kg is about SGD120.

I think this is a good and direct way to help the poor... :xedfingers:

You can send them to Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling at 12 Guillemard Lane.
Tel : 6344 9521 / 6342 0806

I think what they need are clothes, shoes/slippers and blankets.

A Net User posted on Yahoo news:

"Hi all, for all who wish to donate clothes and blankets. Please come down to the Church of the Holy Trinity at Tampines. There will be a lorry parked at the Church. The church is organizing a container to be sent to Philippines tomorrow morning. Anyone who wish to donate clothing please do so by tonight. Thanks."

Those people staying around Tampines...spread the news...please. :thankyou:
