I have clean bedding and towels that I want to donate. Is there a shelter or somewhere else I can donate them? Thanks.
There are several nonprofits that dream of receiving clean sheets and towels to carry out their mission. I won’t cover all of them, but here are a few places that will accept them and you may know of other similar organizations in your community.
The Humane Society accepts blankets and bath towels to help make the animals more comfy.
Wheeler Mission has 15 locations around Indianapolis that will accept all kinds of household items to help the homeless in Indiana.
The Julian Center includes sheets, towels, and wash cloths (among many other items) on their wish list to help care for adults and children forced to leave their homes and personal belongings for safety.
The Society of Saint Vincent DePaul gratefully accepts bed linens and many other items at their distribution center to help the needy.
