As you prepare your home to sell or if you are planning a move and have items you don’t want to take with you there is a very easy and worthwhile way to donate them to Vietnam Veterans. They pick up and they pick up within 24 hours and you don’t have to be home. They make it easy peasy. From their website:
“While other major charity organizations require you to schedule your donation pick up weeks in advance, and some of them have stopped offering pick-up service all together, Pick Up Please.org can pick up your donation within 24 hours in many areas.
Your generous donations and charitable contribution of clothing, household goods, books, shoes, small appliances, electronics, and more make a big difference in the lives of America’s Veterans and their families. The items you donate generate the majority of the funding to support the local, state, and national programs of the Vietnam Veterans of America.
