Where I Send My Stuff

When I say that I’m getting rid of 400 things this month, that doesn’t mean that I’m giving the garbage men on Thurston Road a workout. While a few things will inevitably end up in the trash, the large majority will be going to the Vietnam Veterans of America. There are a lot of great charities out there to donate to but these guys are my fav. Not only do your donations benefit a great cause (50% of the funding for veteran programs comes from donations), but they’ll come right to your house to pick up your donations and you don’t even have to be home. Here’s the official list of acceptable donations from their website:

• Clothing of all types & sizes (men’s, ladies, children’s, baby’s)
• Clothing accessories – purses, belts, ties, wallets
• Shoes (all kinds)
• Baby items
• Houseware, glassware, and home decor
• Books, toys, bikes
• Stereos, radios, and other electronics
• Bedding, linens, draperies, curtains
• Kitchenware
• Usable small furniture & rugs
• Small appliances
• Tools (all kinds)
• Jewelry and cosmetics

If you’re looking for a place to send your unwanted things to, you can schedule a pickup here
