How cleaning out your closets can help these 3 great charities near Sweetwater
Most Americans list a messy home as one of their top five stressors, and clutter raises stress hormones for women in particular, according to Psychology Today.
On the flip side, a clean and organized home is strongly associated with an improved mood, decreased stress and heightened creativity. Add in the “helper’s high” you get when you donate unwanted items to charity, and you might already be heading to clear out those closets.
Here’s a great article on 20 ways to deep clean your house. And here are three ways to turn your clutter into good deeds that benefit the greater community.
The Ladies of Charity Lake Travis Thrift Shop provides monetary and in-kind donations to a wide variety of Lake Travis area, Central Texas and international charities. They accept donations of gently used clothing, toys, books, household goods, décor and home furnishings.
Dress for Success Austin accepts donations of clean, gently used clothes that are appropriate for their clients to wear to job interviews. This international organization is dedicated to helping women achieve financial independence through returning to the workforce and succeeding.
