Is your house overflowing with “stuff” and you’re not sure what to do with it? Taking the items to a local Goodwill or similar organization may have crossed your mind, but you can never find the time to get things done, right? If this situation occurs with frequency in your household, there is a charitable organization to help you. It’s called Donatestuff.com, a non- profit outfit working to find a new home for the stuff in your house.
How it Works
Working with its affiliates, AMVETs, Military Order of Purple Heart, and City Mission, Donatestuff.com helps those in need by making charitable donations as easy as possible. The organization serves as an intermediary between those who have things to give and the charitable non- profit organizations that need the goods.
The way it works is simple. You logon to the Donatestuff.com web site and on the home page, enter your zip code. If one of the above affiliates or some other charity partner has a pickup service in your area, you can schedule a pickup. Just answer a few questions, leave the items outside your front door, and Donatestuff.com will take care of the rest. If there is no pickup service available, don’t worry- Donatestuff.com will send you prepaid UPS bags. You just fill the bags with clothing, toys, or other household goods then drop them off at a local UPS store or box. Donatestuff.com will then distribute to the appropriate charitable organization.
Give More, Reduce Waste
With Donatestuff.com, donors and recipients benefit in several ways. The giving of items to those in need is, of course, of utmost importance and donors receive a tax deduction like with any charitable donation. But in addition to a good deed, donors can feel comforted knowing that they have helped reduce waste, save landfills from additional trash, and ultimately help the environment and all its inhabitants.

Donating excess stuff has never been easier thanks to Donatestuff.com. Gather up your household stuff, logon to Donatestuff.com, enter your zip code, and schedule a pickup or request UPS bags. It’s a simple, efficient way to give to those in need, reduce landfill waste, and relieve some of the excess clutter in your home.
