Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I donate to these "bins" as it is often more convenient that going to a charity shop (pedestrianised town centre) and I want to help someone in need. If you happen to be that person in need, then I'd be quite happy for you to take it.

@Untamedfemale My lovely, if you need it to help clothe your children, please take it.
The people who have donated it did so to help others, you are being helped. Just do it considerably and sensibly.
Hard times need solutions.
Many of the LA's do a coats through their children centre. I know ours do, also wellies.
Might be worth a phone call.

I’d see no problem with this whatsoever. The charities are hardly desperate for donations when they’re letting their clothes banks overflow to the point people are chucking their bin bags all over the pavements. The ones outside are likely to get water damaged or even covered in dirt if the bags get ripped, they’ll just end up going to the rag man if not the bin. I wouldn’t take stuff out the banks themselves, but out of the bags on the floor, definitely.
