...and donating clothes in NYC

The idea is to create small boxes with 5/7 days worth of clothes
separated and labelled by type - ie. 7 days worth of 3 year old boy
clothes, throwing in diapers etc too. That way it can be pulled off the
shelf and just given over. Makes it easier for the non-profit or
shelter to just hand it over to the parent.

Thank you to those who have already agreed to donate used or new
clothing to help children recovering from Hurricane Katrina.
Please mark if the clothing is new - goes in a different package than
the used ones. I will get them shipped to the agency in Houston
directly.
