People in need can get clothes with special coupons or cards for free in the community charity store in Shanghai. The store is the city's first community charity store, selling daily necessities as well as used clothes donated by residents capped at 50 yuan. The store receives more than 50,000 donated clothes a year from around 120 local residents a month. All the revenue is donated to charity organizations to help more people in need.
