I've got a dozen or so men's sport coats/blazers and a bunch of children's clothes that I'd like to donate. Anyone care to give a shout out to their fave charity that accepts clothing donations?

My first thought is Goodwill, but I'm all ears...

We often donate such items to the Storehouse, which is on Broadway, just south of Central.
I think you should check out the Barrett Foundation which is an independent, nonprofit organization that helps homeless women and children build better lives. They have a thrift store called the Barrett House Attic. Go here>
Joy Junction on south second street is a great non-profit that works with homeless families.  But Jen and LenR are both right also.  Storehouse and Barrett Foundation are great organizations also
Thank you for mentioning Goodwill, Ron. Remember that we are both local and nonprofit (and proud members of DCF!)...the money stays right here and helps people here in Albuquerque. We helped nearly 10,000 people in New Mexico last year with a variety of services and programs to help people overcome barriers to employment, 4,786 of those in Albuquerque alone.
I will add -- the Goodwill on San Mateo makes it so easy to donate items. Just drive up and nice men are waiting to unload your goods. This alone would make it one of my favorites.
Thanks! Our guys (and gals) work very hard and are the best!
We give to S.A.F.E. House Thrift Store (west side of San Mateo near Mountain) as well as Barrett House Attic, already mentioned, both worthwhile organizations.
Just so you know, Savers is a for-profit thrift store based in Bellevue, Washington. Goodwill, Barrett House, Storehouse, Joy Junction, et al, are all local nonprofits.

Oh yes, agreed, and Savers has two great local nonprofit partners — Clothes Helping Kids and Big Brothers Big Sisters – both of whom do amazing work and are worthy of the full support of the community.

 

We were simply pointing out that the option of donating to a locally based nonprofit like Goodwill, Barrett House, Storehouse, Joy Junction, and many others who are able to receive the full benefit of the community's generosity with no worries about proceeds from sales of those goods going out-of-state helps to maximze the local impact of your donation. Thanks!

All good tips. Thanks everyone!
