Need To Donate Items Before Moving?

Moving to a new home is a good opportunity to go through your belongings, and only move what you and your family need and cherish.  

Where can I take unwanted items? 

Once you’ve sorted through your stuff, next thing is to get rid of all your unwanted items. So, where can you donate the things you no longer need? There are many different organizations and charities that accept donations, these include: Goodwill, Salvation Army, Baby2Baby. A lot of the common charities accept most things, however, some organizations, such as the library will only accept certain items, make sure to check before you donate or schedule a pickup. In addition to donating to local donation centers, shelters are always in need of certain items. What items do homeless shelters need most? new, unused personal hygiene products, toiletries, clothes, shoes, and bedding are some of the important item’s shelters will accept. There are also charities that help homeless people get back into work, so, if you have working electronics, these can really help someone learn a new skill.  

What should you not donate? 

There are some items that should not be donated. These include: dirty, stained, or ripped clothes, shoes with holes, furniture that’s in really bad shape, or has bugs, broken glass or mirrors, dirty or broken household appliances, broken toys and children’s items.
