These Organizations Will Pick Up Your Donations
During the holiday season, waste increases in all areas: food, clothing, electronics, furnishings. This comes at a great cost to our environment and budgets. Before sending goods to a landfill, get them into a new home for another person to use! Check out this list of charities. (This list is not a comprehensive list of all organizations that pick up donations.) For more information on how to set up a pick up date and accepted items list, please contact that organization.
