I have several blouse and shirts I want to find a second life for. I think these merit better than being hacked apart into cleaning rags so I wonder where or what I can do with them. All are cotton and clean. Some of course have the usual wear and tear.
Please know I am open to all ideas. :) Attached is but a small sample of my old friends.

Another group who would welcome fabric donations would be the sewers at a nursing home and retirement centre. I used to live in Cherokee County, GA, and often saw donation calls from activities directors down in MetroATL in the free classifieds.

And youth groups would probably be over the moon for those yard goods, too. Check with the local high schools to see if they have a Life Skills or Home Skills teacher who might be able to point you in the right direction to share that fabric wealth.

Assisted living centers, Salvation Army, and St. Vincent de Paul centers come to mind. These people do amazing work and rarely get that big of a donation. Look for guilds that make blankets for the homeless...a real coup for them. I hope that helps.

Possibilities: Call any senior centers in your area as many have sewing and quilting classes and would certainly appreciate your donation.

Call churches in your area. They may have groups who would appreciate your fabric for clothes, blankets, etc., for homeless shelters, youth clubs, etc.

Elementary schools, child care centers, city adult education centers, etc., may be able to use fabric. Call or check online for quilling and sewing groups in your area.

Good Luck!
