Clothing for a Cause

Donating Clothing and Small Household Items

Donate your gently worn clothes, books, toys, and small household items to FamilyForward’s Clothing for a Cause program and make a difference. Your donations are recycled for sale and 100% of the collection proceeds enable FamilyForward to continue providing innovative programming to build safer, healthier relationships for children and families.

The service is so easy and convenient. It makes me feel really good that things we don’t need anymore are directly helping kids and families who need it most.

How It Works

  • Clean out your closets and cabinets.
  • Schedule a pickup online and type 52371 in the Charity # box or call 314.416.1300 and let the operator know you want to schedule a pickup for FamilyForward. Our partner, Charity Clothing Pickup, will notify you when they are in your neighborhood.
  • On pick-up day, place your donations on your front doorstep with labels that say “FamilyForward” (you will receive a tax receipt in return).
  • Your items will be recycled for sale with 100% of the proceeds donated back to support FamilyForward programs.
  • Call 636.282.0000 if you experience a problem with your pickup.
