Sorority unsold t-shirts

Hi,
I'm in a sorority and recently we've had trouble selling all of our shirts. This has left us with boxes FILLED with old t-shirts from various philanthropy events. Each shirt typically has the year on it too. Does anybody know any ways that we can recycle these shirts and get our money back if possible?

Sell to alums? But otherwise, you don't want to see one on a drunk downtown so destroy them.

Offer to new members? Big sisters for little sis gifts? Sisters looking to make t-shirt quilts?

There are many shirt swaps on Facebook for whatever sorority you're in. You can easily post there and sell shirts to other members.

Exhibit A:


The story behind this is somewhere in the thread about finding your letters in unusual places.

Still a favorite photo of mine lol.

Anyhow, I do warn people against donating letters/shirts to thrift stores, as I've seen people buy the shirt because it looks cool and then they're out wearing letters without being in an org!

Or they're out wearing letters and doing things that would earn your members a swift expulsion. Or a trip to jail.

That's actually what happened. A guy bought an AKA shirt at a thrift and wore it. But trust me, there was plenty of backlash.

Iím not surprised. It trips me out knowing GLO members are donating their perry to thrift stores/Goodwill or whatever. While that photo is funny as hell, it just blows me away that it got in the wrong hands.

Take them with you to convention and sell to other chapters. And sell to alums at homecoming (specifically, after approximately 7 pm Saturday night lol).

Are the letters hugely on it? Or does it just say “Beta Beta presents their 57th Chili Cookoff” in script? If it’s the latter, I wouldn’t worry about them falling into random hands.

Years ago, I was riding down our main street with several teachers on our way to a training. I looked out and saw several Guatemalan guys coming down the street, wearing AKA shirts. I nudged the half-sleeping AKA next to me and said, "Hey L____, there are your sisters," and she woke up and looked and screamed, "WHAT?" and started trying to climb over me (at about 35 mph) and get at them! This woman was in her seventies!

We were trying to hold her down until the driver could get way past them. For sure, she would have ripped their shirts off!
