Donate your winter clothes at these NYC stores—and get a reward

Written by

That warm and fuzzy feeling you get from doing a good deed should be enough, but these NYC stores offer other perks (in the form of discounts) for your kindness. We'll take it!

Donate a gently used coat to women’s athletic store Lolë through December 1, and you’ll get a $50 credit for new outerwear (starting at $160). The brand is selling many of the donated coats (including ones from Liv Tyler and Padma Lakshmi) at Brooklyn Flea this weekend, with the proceeds going to 
food bank Ample Harvest.

Local shop Veda is also having a coat drive through the holiday season, with donated items going to the Coalition for the Homeless. Your reward is 15 percent off your purchase.

Men's shirt shop Marcella Custom is accepting gently used dress shirts that'll be donated to folks in need of professional attire for job interviews (via Career Gear). Drop your shirts off at the Soho outpost through December 15th, and you'll get $20 off your next custom shirt purchase.

And finally, the new Paul Frank pop-up isn’t accepting used clothes but is asking you to buy a pair of pajamas ($18–$42) to donate to the homeless and at-risk youth. Do that, and you’ll get a 50 percent discount on a pair for yourself.
