My neighborhood has several large yellow metal containers (similar in size to the garbage) on the street that are marked for used clothing for the poor.

I always put anything we have in those yellow containers- think they are operated by Caritas?

Am new in Rome with children below 7, I could get them if they are appropriate for their ages.

Ssali, i have already put my clothes in a yellow container, sorry! but message me the ages and gender of your kids and if i have anything suitable to donate over the next few months, they are all yours if you can collect.

I take all unwanted but good stuff to the nuns who run some kind of shelter for poor families. I refuse to put them in the yellow containers as I often see people pull stuff out of them, and who knows, they might sell it on.
