Clothing and Shoes

What's with these ubiquitous "Clothes and Shoes" boxes? I have been seeing them around for years.

Harper's ran a letter several years ago, the gist of which was:

Step 1: Collect clothes and shoes in a roadside box.

Step 2: ?????

Step 3: World domination.

I still think of this with amusement when I see the red boxes. Could any of the clothing (or shoes, for that matter) that I have thrifted once been inside one of them? It is entirely possible.

Supposedly the ones marked USAgain are run by a cult. There was an article about it in the Shepherd Express. Here's there site: http://www.usagain2.com/

I've seen more than one brand of these collection boxes.
But your comment made me laugh. One person's "cult" is another person's "small conservative Lutheran church body."
