Donations Tips
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Summer has arrived! It’s the season of cook outs, pool days and, for many, home renovations and organization projects. As with many tasks around the house, home organization undertakings often lead homeowners to realize they have extra or unneeded items. Instead of just letting your unneeded belongings sit around your house collecting dust, or even worse, throwing them out, consider giving them another life by taking them to a donation center nearby.

While donation centers generally accept a wide variety of items, some things are more sought after than others. Items most needed  by donation centers are clothing, shoes, books and furniture. On the other hand, donation centers cannot accept  large household appliances, broken electrical items, box springs and mattresses.

Another benefit of giving items to a donation center is you may be able to claim a charitable deduction on your taxes depending upon your individual tax situation. As always, please consult a tax professional.
