We’re nearing the end of February already — how far have you come with your New Year’s resolutions? Was one of yours to kick the clutter and get organized in 2014? How much progress have you made?
If you’re having trouble getting rid of those unwanted items lying around, consider creating a donation station at home. Here’s how it works. Whether you’re plowing through your packed-to-the-brim closet or getting rid of toys in the kids’ rooms, collect any items you’re willing to donate in an empty box or paper bags. Set up your station somewhere out of the way, like a closet, the garage or a space that’s rarely used. When your container is full, put it in the car and drop it off at your local Horizon Goodwill Industries location the next time you’re out running errands.
Donating things you don’t use to Goodwill® is so easy, but it leaves such a HUGE impact!
- You’re achieving your goals of being better organized.
- You have a great new space ready for other projects.
- You have less clutter to maneuver around.
- You are fueling job-training programs that impact your community.
- Your donations are tax deductible.
When you donate to Goodwill, we put 90 percent of all revenue generated into job training programs and services for people who need them. Powered by your donations, our free services help people who want to work but have barriers to employment, like disabilities. By keeping our administrative cost low, we can use more value of your donations to help others find and keep a job.
So, get started today on your own donation station, and see what impact your donations can leave on your community. Click here to find out what items we gladly accept or here to see our store locations and hours of operation.
