The list may grow throughout the year. Customers who donate their unwanted items can select from the list above which charitable organization they want the sales of their items to go to. If they have one which is not on the list, all they have to do is tell us where they want the money to go and we will make sure it goes to that organization for them.
We also use a portion of the money raised for the following events we have throughout the year... "Pay It Forward" and "Give Back" campaigns, "Challenges" on Social Media.
Result: Everyone wins with what we do.
Last, with all the donated items we receive, many of them could have otherwise ended up in the landfill. The average person in North America throws away 70 pounds of textiles every year. That’s 21 billion pounds of extra waste dumped in our landfills every year! And the EPA estimates only 15% is donated or recycled.
