Anyone know if there are any of those clothes donations drop boxes around the neighborhood or anywhere else to donate old clothes/shoes?

  • There's a box on Lawrence just a couple blocks West of Western (on the South side of the street) in front of the little strip mall that has LA Tan.

  • There's also one at the Mobil station on Damen and Eastwood.

  • See Tea Lasagna Lover

    Perfect, only a few blocks away. Thanks!

    There is a St. Vincent De Paul box in the parking lot at St. Matthias.

  • One on the corner of Foster and St. Louis.

  • At the gas station at damen and Eastwood

  • It's a little farther away but JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) has a box on Roscoe and Hoyne. It's staffed during the day for receipts as well.

  • The brown elephant in Andersonville on Clark is also a great place to donate clothes. Very friendly and for a great cause. I prefer going there as opposed to the drop boxes. Who knows where those clothes go.

  • Aron Long tlme Lincoln sq home owner

    On the west side of Lincoln ave around 5000 north there's a resale shop with ties to two charities where they accept donations .otherwise call the salvation army and they will pick up .

  • Really interesting short podcast on this topic:

    I'm with Mike C and donate to Brown Elephant - keeping it local, non-profit and for a good cause.

  • Village thrift in Roscoe Village also takes clothes and shoes.

  • We bring the majority of our donations to The Brown Elephant on Clark St. We echo the sentiments of Mike C and rocketsurgeon above.
