Clothes to Donate

I have been working on cleaning out my closet the last few weeks. I know I can donate them to Goodwill or something, but I am hoping to find a women's shelter or mission that accepts clothes, many of these clothes are semi-professional in style. If anyone knows of a such a place here in Portland, please let me know.
Thanks, R.

What can I do next?

If you have any children's clothing, we can take it off of your hands. We are having a children's clothing closet for the families in need we work with. ____@____.com

For your clothing, I would contact your local community college. They will often have clothes closets for women who are entering the workforce and need clothing for this. I know for a fact the Clark College in Vancouver does this.
