Why do we have garage sales when we could just donate our clothing and other etc. to our local shelters?

I run an organization that allows me to take items that people care to donate to needy families to local shelter's etc. But I see so many people anymore after the garage sale's etc. Just throwing these things away and I'm talking about clothing items even with the tags on them do they not know that they could use this as a tax write off by giving in donations? It's surprising by how many forget that with the economic hardship we are facing there are people who can't afford to buy clothing and other person items.
