As the holiday season fast approaches, we are trying to get the house in order and clear out some clutter.  We try to stay on top of our donation pile by gathering it in the basement in one place.  Once the pile looks like it’s going to fall over (yes, it’s happened), we schedule a pickup from Vietnam Veterans.  We have been sending our donations there for years, both to support their cause and also because they offer the home pickup service.

Here is a list of what they accept:

  • Clothing of all types & sizes (men’s, ladies, children’s, baby’s)
  • Clothing accessories
  • Shoes (all kinds)
  • Baby items
  • House and glassware
  • Books, toys, bikes
  • Stereos, radios, portable TVs
  • All bedding, draperies, curtains
  • Kitchenware
  • Usable small furniture & rugs
  • Small appliances
  • Tools (all kinds)
  • Jewelry and cosmetics

To schedule a pickup, you can do it online at or you can call your local office, get the number here.

How do you get your home ready for the holidays?

    I like that home pick-up option! My local thrift store gives me a 20% off coupon when I bring in a bag of donations, so I always take my stuff there (or to my church, since we are there every Sunday anyway…).
