Brown Elephant Alternative

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to drop discarded clothes and "stuff"where they may do someone else some good ?

  • I assumed it was bc they closed the Halsted location? I wish B.E. would institute dropboxes so we wouldn't have to deal with the weird mystery around these other boxes.

  • Unattended drop boxes have a host of problems. The clothes in them are subject to bugs and getting wet, and people try to take the clothes out of them. The drop boxes really aren't very effective.
