I’ve just had a strange experience. Since I’m moving, I’ve decided to donate some furniture, duplicate bakeware and kitchenware, appliances, clothes, shoes, handbags, linens, a sewing machine, and an LCD TV.
Easy, right? No. Here are the organizations that turned me down. They don’t pickup due to costs, they don’t take TV’s more than 4 years old, they don’t taking clothing, on and on…
- Habitat for Humanity
- Goodwill (a disappointment, my husband was on the Goodwill Roundtable in Miami)
- Veterans of America
And my first choice, the Breast Cancer Foundation. They cannot schedule a pickup until mid-September. Busy people…
The Rescue Mission of Miami was happy and willing, as was the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army is coming on Wednesday, and I’m happy with this as my family has always supported them with food and $ donations at Christmas and Thanksgiving.
An interesting quest with unexpected results. Coco
