Nonprofits typically see a big decline in donations following the holiday season. Why not start a new tradition and keep the giving going … and clear out your space while you’re at it. If you’re in the Portland area, host a collection drive at your office, school or neighborhood to support Community Warehouse. You pick the dates that work for you, CW delivers the collection bins and picks them up when the drive is done. Simple! (What a great way to regift that nice but not needed set of mugs from Santa.) Contact CW to schedule your collection drive. Note: Accepted items include new or used small household things like kitchenware, linens, etc. No clothing, food or personal hygiene items. Click here to get a detailed list of what they currently accept. Read more about CW and why I’m a fan. Happy Giving … and clearing!
TIP: Not in the PDX area? Use the nationwide donate/recycle guide at Earth 911 (another favorite from my Resources Page). Just put in your zip code and up pops a list of who in your area accepts what you what to donate. Easy!
