DONATE TO YOUR LOCAL WOMEN’S REFUGE

DONATE TO YOUR LOCAL WOMEN’S REFUGE

-by Niyati Upadhyay

We have a wardrobe full of clothes, but there are chances that we only wear 40% of what we own. There are those who need clothes, and several organizations in the city that accept old clothes. Here’s a list of such places where you can do some good and feel happy at the same time.

1) Share At Doorstep India

This group basically connects you to the local NGOs in the vicinity. All you do is visit their website and schedule a pickup. A list of all the NGOs in your area will appear. Get the clothes you want to donate. Remember, a convenience fee of INR 199 is charged as the tempo comes to your doorstep.

2) Shanti Avedna Cancer Hospice

Located near Mt. Mary in Bandra West, this palliative care centre takes care of terminally ill cancer patients who always need care and love in their final few days. They accept clothes, food items and medicines. However, since it’s a care centre, ensure that the clothes you donate are loose and comfortable. Also, the hospice is particular about one donating torn clothes, so send them your love with lesser worn clothes that you don’t need anymore.

3) Sneha Sadan

Sneha Sadan is a home for homeless children in Andheri East. Kids are always in need of clothes and food, but it’s also fun to see the expression on their face when they are given an old football jersey that they can wear, given most football players are heroes to them. Apart from this, you can also donate toys, since they love playing in groups.
