But I saw they were in good condition and just needed to be cleaned.
I took them all home and ran them through a wash and dry. Here's most of what was tossed out:
Some blue jeans, some tee shirts, some sweatshirts:
This one in particular looked so cozy. The hood is lined with faux fur:
There was also a hand-knit scarf, with this pretty button to fasten it snug around the neck.
I will never understand why people throw out perfectly good clothes when there are folks in this world who don't have enough warm, clean things to wear.
I am taking the sweatshirts and the knit scarf to Lovely Daughter #2, whose students--and their parents--often don't have enough warm clothes to get through a Boston winter.
The rest of the pile goes off to charity.
