LPT: Wash your used clothes before donating them to Goodwill or Salvation Army. If anything smells or looks remotely foul we immediately dispose your entire stock. Same goes for broken or dirty furniture and appliances. We don’t fix stuff or wash them, we sell as-is or dump it.

LPT: Don’t donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army. They are awful to the people they claim to support. Donate to ACTUAL charities who DO wash the clothes they receive, and who get your donations to people in need without abusing and/or exploiting underprivileged people in the process.

Do NOT donate to these places. They are scams.

Donate to your local homeless and battered women’s shelters. Fuck Goodwill and Salvation Army. I seen employees at Goodwill call the cops on a homeless man for digging through the donation bin smh
