Let Them Come to You

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

How’s that Winter Cleaning comin’ along?

The guys at Goodwill were happy to see me and I was happy to see more of my garage.

But what if you have more Winter Cleaning donations than your vehicle can hold? What if you don’t have the time during the holidays to deliver them to the thrift shop yourself?

Certain organizations will pick up donations from your doorstep–rain or shine. Many of them place postcards in your mailbox a  week or two before they will be in your neighborhood. I just received a postcard from Big Brothers Big Sisters with the tag line: ‘Yes. We want the shirt off your back.’ I thought that was pretty clever…

Here’s a short  list of organizations that offer free pick up of donations at your home:

Big Brothers Big Sisters (Northern New Jersey)
877-336-8828
www.njpickup.org

Vietnam Veterans of America
www.clothingdonations.org/service.htm
(Most US states)

Lupus
1-888-44-LUPUS
www.lupuspickup.org
(Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia)

The Salvation Army
1-800-SA-TRUCK
www.satruck.org/donate-goods

Keep cleaning. Then pick up the phone and set up a time for a pick up. You’ll be glad you did.
