I don't think any of those orgs take clothes. Everyone is asking us to donate money. For NGOs list you can refer this list..  ..  Even i have faced this problem. Of course some of them take books and food. But old clothes...  no.. I think the best option would be to visit some temples and churches and give away those old things to the people sitting outside.

 Hi Alam,

long time since I logged into this forum :) Not sure if the above query of has found answers.  I'll tell you what I did...might help you.  I had my istri-wala's family - husband, wife and two kids- who were always in need of clothing.  As did my maid.  And usually, if you ask these people, they will know someone who is in need of them.  I even asked my daily garbage collector, street sweeper, milkman and the gorkha.  Even push-cart sabji-wala and flower vendors.  They all accepted clothes if they were in good condition.  Even footwear, old sheets/drapes.

If your kids have outgrown toys/books, ask a local day-care facility or anganwadi if they will take them. They usually do.
