Power cleaning your house? Donate your unwanted items!

Be charitable and be green at the same time. / Mike Morrison

Spring is on its way and you may have already begun your spring cleaning. Well this year as you are making your house spic and span and getting rid of all those items you may never use again consider donating them to the Salvation Army or other charity organization. This not only helps others but also saves the environment and that's not all.

By donating unwanted items you can do a lot of good. Donations are tax deductable and this time of year that is on everyone's mind.

Giving second life to items instead of just putting them in the trash helps out the environment and the people who can put the items to good use.

Charitable organizations who sell the items you donate can do more to help out the community you live in.
