One of the most recurrent questions among the Secret Tel Aviv Community is where to donate clothes in Tel Aviv. There are different associations that take clothing donations, some give it to people in need and other sell it in second hand stores and donate the money to a certain cause. Here are some of our favorites:


King George 35 (secondhand store) plus bins across the city (CENTRAL TEL AVIV)

WIZO was founded in 1920 in direct response to the needs of women and children in Israel. Today, WIZO continues to identify the needs of Israeli society and creates solutions to meet them. One of these solutions is taking clothes donations, and re-selling in their secondhand store in King George, all the money raised is given to women and children in need. They have drop-off bins across Tel Aviv where people can leave their clothes, shoes and accessories and they pick it up, there is one bin in Ibn Gvirol corner with Arlozorov. More info
