As technology continues to advance at a staggering rate, it seems as if there is a faster way to do just about everything in 2015. Donating is no exception to this, and donation pick up services have made it easier than ever to give back to the less fortunate families in your community.
The holiday season is just around the corner, so it’s important to start getting involved now by taking inventory of all the lightly used clothing in your home that you wouldn’t mind getting rid of. Thankfully, there are now charities that will pick up donations directly from your home. Donation pick up eliminates any excuse you may have not to donate, so be sure to take advantage of it.
Save time. An obvious benefit of donation pick up is that it saves you tons of time in having to drive your clothing donations to a local organization. Simply gather all your charitable donations, arrange a time for your local charity to pick them up, and they’ll be on their way to needy families in no time. It’s the perfect way to help your community without ever even having to leave your home.
Donate more than you may have before. One of the most common qualms people have with donating is having to load their car with a bunch of heavy bags and bins. A survey found that about half of people making donations prefer door-to-door pick up, and for good reason. These donation pick up services will never refuse any amount of clothing, whether it be too big or too small, and you’ll never have to strain your back lifting heavy bags and bins.
Your donations can change a family’s holiday experience. When you donate used clothes for the holiday season, you’re providing a family who is down on their luck with gifts to exchange. Giving the less a fortunate the normal holiday experience of gift giving is the least we can do to get them through tough times. As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and anything you can spare to part with helps the cause.
About 43% of people say they give more during the holidays than the rest of the year, which shows that many understand the importance of giving during the fall and winter. You can join in these efforts by getting in touch with a local charity and taking advantage of donation pick up services. Giving back will make this holiday season something that your family remembers forever.
