If you still have items left over after the yard sale, consider donating them to one of the following places:
East End Community Thrift http://thomasmertoncenter.org/thrifty/thrifty-location/
Close to home at 5123 Penn Ave. This is a small all-volunteer-run store that is a project of the Thomas Merton Center. They give a portion of all donated clothing received to people who are served at homeless shelters, half way houses, and low income supported housing arrangements. We do this by providing clothing vouchers to established nonprofits who then distribute them to their clients and participants. See website for hours and a list of what types of donated items they will accept.
