There are 2.1 million children under the age of 18 living in Liberia. Decades of conflicts and the recent Ebola epidemic have negatively affected the lives of children – many have been displaced from their homes and lost parental care. Less than 68 percent of Liberia children finish primary school. In many cases, the parents can’t afford the extra costs – transport, clothing, school books, and materials of schooling.
Our goal is to provide clothing assistance to poor children and families in Liberia and across Africa. We accept donations of used clothes, shoes, and other household stuff like computers, and mattresses that are in good condition. When you donate your used clothes, shoes, and mattresses to the Delano King Foundation, you create an opportunity for poor children and families in Liberia, and across Africa to smile, and appreciate the goodness of God.
Step 1: Gather Your Stuff
Walk around your home and collect items you and your family no longer need — shirt, pants, dress, shoes, toy, computer, children cloths, etc.
Step 2: Give Them A Look Over
Donating items that are in working condition, contain all their pieces and parts, and are free of stains and rips is the best way to ensure that your donation do the most good. While we accept most clothing and household items, there are a few things we can’t accept – such as items that have been recalled, banned or do not meet current safety standards.
Step 3: Schedule A Pickup Date
Taxes and Your Donations
When we pick up your donations, you’ll receive a receipt from a donation attendant. Hang on to this receipt – at the end of the year, you can claim a tax deduction for clothing and household items that are in good condition. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires you to value your donation when filing your return.
