Re: where donate clothes
Usually you have multiple options.
One, texaid does collections multiple times a year. They send a plastic bag to every household. Place it on the sidewalk on the evening before the day given on the bag, it will be collected during that day.
Additionally, some (but not all I think) recycling collection spots have bins for all things textile. Deposit at a time and date of your choice.
I could be wrong on this one, but I think I've also seen textile collection points at (Coop?) supermarkets. You may have one near you.
