No one has ever become poor from giving.
Choosing to donate your extra stuff to charity is a laudable decision. If you have items you’re wavering over donating (the blender you barely use, for instance), now’s the perfect time to do it.
If you’re having a hard time deciding where to donate in Seattle, we thought you ought to consider these three organizations to put your clutter to good use.
Value Village, a Savers brand, is a for-profit, global thrift retailer offering great quality, gently used clothing, accessories and household goods. We have partnered with Value Village to make donating easy for you for those things you don’t want to put in storage.
This is how it works: during a scheduled pickup or delivery, Wayforth will pick up donation items and transport them to Value Village. This service is free and does not need to be scheduled, just ask your driver.
If you want to give a new life to a large variety of items, but don’t want to do a big sort or worry about condition too much, Seattle Goodwill is your answer. They accept almost everything (just no mattresses, large home appliances or hazardous items) and have locations all over the city!
What used items to donate: Pretty much everything! Toys, clothes, furniture, books, art supplies, electronics and exercise equipment. No food items, mattresses or major appliances.
