GENTLY USED CLOTHING FOR
Dec 2013 - Present:
Thank you from residents of Long Island, South Dakota, Haiti, Sri Lanka, and Africa.
Leaving Footprints was founded in 2013 to address the current struggles of many Long Islanders to adequetly clothe their families, especially their children.
The basic idea is to recycle like-new "Lost and Found" items from Suffolk County schools, sorted and washed, to families that can use them.
From there we have branched out to providing gently worn clothing to children (and adults) in the LI migrant population, Native American schools in South Dakota, and children in Kenya and Tanzania.We accept no money, only time from those wishing to help in this mission.
The inspiration for Kennedy's famous observation, "For of those to whom much is given, much is required" can be found in Luke 12:48: "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required."
Our litle friends in East Africa!
Thank you for supplying gently used clothing, shoes, and school supplies to many grateful children and adults in the US and around the world!
We pick up, wash, sort, and deliver your unneeded items to schools, churches and individuals who remember your kindness forever!

Clean out your Closets
While sorting, ask yourself these three things:
- How many of the same item, such as t-shirts or sweaters, do I actually need?
- Is it wise to hold on to clothes my children or I have outgrown?
- Do I really need these clothes that no longer fit me?
