Donating clothing and furniture to various charities is not only a way to help others, but it keeps these donated items out of our overflowing landfills. But, have you ever thought to donate these items to local community theater groups, or college or high school drama departments? Local theater groups are always on the look out for furniture for their sets and clothing and accessory items to dress the cast. Donated goods help to defray costs. Also consider donating leftover paint and building supplies needed for creating the backdrops and sets for their productions.
An internet search or checking out your local newspaper will supply you with a list of theater groups in your area.
