Give your clothes a second life in the hands of refugees in need
Originally published in the Brussels Express.
CLOTHESUP gives you the opportunity to declutter your wardrobe to give clothing you want to give away to people who need them. Your second-hand clothes may be given new life in the hands of refuges in your community in Belgium, as well as those in camps in Lebanon.
Starting in 2019, SB OverSeas is expanding its clothing aid project to now being able to PICK UP donations directly from your DOOR. With the CLOTHESUP project, you can make a request for pick up from your home, business, etc. if you have 5 to 6 bags, 60 litre bag size, of donations: clothing and shoes that are clean and in good condition.
SB OverSeas has been collecting donations for many years at our office in Belgium and for smaller-sized donations you can continue to drop them off at our office in Schaerbeek which is located near Gare du Nord in Brussels.

Since 2013 SB OverSeas has been working to send aid to refugees in Lebanon where the organization’s centers are located. Among the aid is the second-hand CLOTHES which are collected in Belgium and throughout Europe which are then sent to Lebanon or given to refugees living in Belgium.
With a little effort from everyone in our community, clothing can be collected to ensure that families are dressed and safe.
Thank you in advance for your support in expanding our aid mission!
