Where to Donate Your Old Clothes Post-Op


There are many changes and exciting new moments that come after bariatric surgery, but one of the most fun times can be throwing out old clothes and replacing them with a new wardrobe!

While it may seem like an inconvenience to donate your old clothing, there are many organizations nationwide that make it easy to make a positive impact on the less fortunate.

Here are 4 of the most popular non-profit organizations that accept clothing donations:

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army is one of the most popular and effective charitable organizations out there. We’ve almost all seen them ringing bells for money donations at our local store-fronts, but they also accept clothing as well, which goes on to benefit the people in their adult rehabilitation centers. In addition to that, they have a lot of infrastructure in place that makes donating to them easy. They have many drop-off locations spread throughout the country and will also come to you in one of their donation-pickup trucks.


Vietnam Veterans of America

The Vietnam Veterans of America was created back in the 70s and has since become one of the most important organizations that offer much-needed support for the returning veterans of our country. They work to improve the welfare of all veterans, but particularly those that are homeless and/or disabled. They accept clothing along with just about everything else, and have a number of trucks that are used to schedule pickups by simply calling or emailing them.


Planet Aid

Planet Aid started back in the 90s and is a charitable organization that directly focuses on the recycling and collection of clothing as well as shoes for environmental protection and helping impoverished areas. Since their inception, they’ve become a very efficient organization and regularly recycle millions of pounds of used clothing articles every single year.



Goodwill is a huge charitable organization that’s spread throughout the country and has local stores located all over. They’ll accept clothing donations as well as many other things at any of their locations, which are very easy to find by using their online store locater. They sell the clothing at their stores and use the money they raise to fund the local community by providing jobs and relief.
