Clear Clutter for a Cause!

Clear your home of clutter and help those in need as well.  Donate your spring-cleaning castoffs to a charity near you!

Things and Places to Donate:

Your Desktop. You can donate your retired PCs to disadvantaged students and people who have disabilities.  List the goods you can give -- used computers, printers, software at Cristina.org and the National Cristina Foundation will find your electronic goods a new home.

Your Cell.  The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (free shipping labels at NCADV.org) refurbishes phones and sells them to fund financial aid and other programs for abuse survivors.

Your Car.  Pass off your old cars to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (PedAIDS.org).  Cars 4 Causes will tow it for free from your driveway and proceeds support pediatric HIV research and treatment.

Your Business Wear.  Help needy men and women look polished for job interviews by dropping off gently used suits, dress pants, shirts or shoes at one of DressForSuccess.org's 115 locations.

Your Glasses.  Ship used frames and lenses to NewEyesForTheNeedy.org to provide clear vision for an adult or child.  You can also donate your nonprescription sunglasses on the site.

Your Fancy Wear.  Give gowns in good shape to make a less fortunage teen feel like a prom queen.  Log on to DonateMyDress.org to find a local drive.
