I last wrote about Vietnam Veterans of America in 2011. At that time, they still were picking up clothing donations in NYC. They no longer do that, but they have offered a wonderful alternative.
Go to their Happy Donations website to print out a free shipping label. Fill a box with clothing, shoes, jewelry, and/or accessories. Add the label and take the box to a UPS store. You can also give the box to a UPS driver or leave it any other place that UPS picks up, like your office mail room or with the doorman of your apartment building. Vietnam Veterans of America will send you a tax deduction receipt for the items you donate.
If you live in other parts of the country, Vietnam Veterans of America may still pick up your donations. Go to their Donate page, click “Donate Clothing & Household Items”, and enter your zip code to find out.
