Launder or throw away?

I'm not sure what happened but the top is open on one and there's a hole in the side of the other. Anyway, I can't donate wet clothes. But it's also a big job to wash them again. My thought to throw them away is based on knowing that 85% of donated clothing is sold to resellers in bulk, containerloads at a time, and sent overseas. There is an indirect "donation" of money to the charity from that but somehow, thinking of two little bags in a whole seatainer ... it's less imperative than if they were headed for another charity where I know they actually clothe people for job interviews. They do not sell the clothes. Maybe I'm being l**y? I just washed them! But now they're wet and I suppose dirty from water that washed off the roof. I don't really feel like doing it again but I feel bad that I blew such a simple task.
