Are all donations made available to customers?

All gently-used items in good condition are made available. Clothes that are stained,damaged or frayed are not. When in doubt, our volunteers ask, "Would I wear this or would I want my child to wear this?" If not, we do not offer it to our customers.

What about items other than clothing?

We have very little room for anything other than clothing. We can use

  • Bed linens
  • Children's books and parenting books Please do not leave any other books; give them to your local library!
  • limited numbers of small toys or household goods in mint condition

Please check with us before leaving non-clothing items at the Clothing Bank.

When can I drop off my clothing donation?

The Radford Clothing Bank can receive your donation during open hours or during our volunteer work day and offer you a receipt, or

you can leave bagged donations in bin when Clothing Bank is closed: PLEASE BOX OR BAG DONATIONS YOU LEAVE IN THE BIN!

PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF OUR CUSTOMERS AND VOLUNTEERS. Do NOT leave bags of clothes that should have been discarded.

If you wouldn't ask your aging grandmother to lift your bag of donations, it's too heavy for our aging volunteers! Please try not to overstuff your bags.

What about out-of-season clothes?

One exception-WINTER COATS can be accepted at any time.

Can I claim this as a charitable deduction? At what value?
