CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET & DONATE
I clean out my closet every 6 months, but now that my house is on the market, my husband and I both had to thin it down significantly. In a prior post, I referred to my better half as Hector the Collector. As you may imagine, he has collected NUMEROUS polo shirts with embroidered resort logos over the years since he works in the hospitality industry. Many of these shirts still had the tags on them. We accumulated quite a pile of dressy and upscale casual apparel in ‘very good’ to ‘excellent’ condition to donate.
Us women have Dress for Success, which provides business clothes to disadvantaged women who are trying to succeed in the business world. But what about men? I searched online and found a local organization, Florida Resurrection House, which distributes business attire to men in need. Career Gear is another great organization serving 7 states. While I support donating to the Salvation Army and Goodwill, it is nice to know that dress clothes are being given directly to those who really need them most.
So, Ladies…call to action: Get your man to clean out his closet and donate those clothes to someone who needs a second chance. This tax season, I am reminded that write-offs come in quite handy also!
