We spent a large part of our July 4th weekend in the basement, sorting out the good from the bad. Some to trash, some to donations, some just organized better!
But the net result was quite a bit of items for donations. Perfectly good glassware and dishes, clothes, small kitchen appliances and all those gifts we've received that just weren't a good fit for us. So we split our donations into two groups, one for Vietnam Veterans of America and the other for Goodwill.
Now the nice thing about Vietnam Veterans of America is that they will come to you! Set an appointment, mark your donations for them and leave them curbside. They'll come by in their truck and make the pick up and then put your donations to good use.
In Warren County there are quite a few Goodwill donation/store centers. In fact, there are two in Lebanon (one by the Super Walmart and the other on SR123 by Bob Evans). Load your car, make a drop off in just a matter of moments and be back on your way. They'll freshen everything up, sell it and then use the funding for their programs.
In both cases, you can take a tax write off for your donations if you choose. Your call :)
The net result for us, our basement has a LOT more empty room and a couple of worthy charities have more items to help them raise funds. We consider that a real Win-Win!
