How do you know which donating organizations are best for you and the items you have? Where do you find where their drop off sites are? Will they take toys, used furniture, glass ware…etc?
Let me help take some of the guess work out of what can become a daunting and overwhelming task. Below are listed 3 great organizations who will actually come to your home and pick up your donated items. Just a call, or going online, will get your pick up scheduled making it an easy, as well as heart warming, experience.

It’s always advisable to check out their websites first to see if any of their policies or service areas have changed. If you have very specific items that might not fall into these categories, try Google or reach out to me and I’ll try to guide you to an ideal donation organization.
