If one of your quarantine activities has consisted of clearing out your closet and you’re now unsure of where to donate the items, we’ve got just the list for you.

And while not all organizations are currently accepting in-person donations due to the pandemic, several collection bins around the city are open and ready for your unwanted and gently-used clothing items.

Here are three places where you can currently donate:

Big Brothers Big Sisters Puget Sound
