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.

Of the multitudes of charitable organizations out there, clothing charities provide warm and comfort to the thousands of Americans out there that are down on their luck and have nowhere to turn to. The Department of Housing and Urban Development found in a recent study that there are about 600,000 homeless people in the U.S. today. Perhaps more startling is the fact that nearly 25% of them are children and an exorbitant amount of them are military veterans or people with mental illnesses (sometimes both, tragically). For these men, women, and children, charitable organizations provide a lifeline they need in order to bear the streets.
