Donate Clothes and Used Toys to the Homeless

Times are tough for many people in the United States. The sluggish economy and lack of growth is hitting Main Street hard. No one, however, bears the brunt of this more severely than the homeless. For the wealthiest country in the world, the U.S. has a tragic homelessness problem. According to a recent report by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, there are a little shy of 600,000 homeless people in the country today. Of those people, nearly 25% are children and the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that 12% are veterans. These are distressing statistics that goes to show how bleak the economic situation in the U.S. truly is.

One way people can help in the fight against homelessness and poverty is by donating clothes to charity.
