Spring into Sustainability: 4 Things to Donate to Goodwill this Spring!

Ah, the birds are finally chirping and the sun is shining. Spring is here at last, and it’s time for renewal – both in nature and in your home. After all, April is Earth Month!

Take advantage of this opportunity to celebrate spring and new beginnings by clearing out the old. Ohio Valley Goodwill will happily turn your donations into a fresh start for someone in your community. Your generous donations fuel career opportunities that allow individuals to reach their fullest potential!

Start by looking for these four things to donate to Goodwill this spring:

#1: Winter Clothing

With winter still fresh in your mind, you know what you wore and didn’t wear last season. Now’s the best time to pull out the pieces that aren’t being used – before you forget that they didn’t make the cut! Don’t stop at the sweaters. Spring is the perfect time to donate old coats, snow pants, gloves, and more. Ohio Valley Goodwill will gladly take them for next season!

#2: Housewares

Wouldn’t it feel nice to have free cabinet space in your kitchen? Sort through your barely-used small kitchen appliances, utensils, and dishes, and pack up the items that have just been taking up valuable space. Ohio Valley Goodwill accepts all sorts of kitchen gadgets, and the newly-found free space might just inspire you to get cooking!

#3:  Holiday Décor

The winter holidays are long behind us, but Ohio Valley Goodwill still accepts all sorts of home décor. Everything from Christmas lights to Halloween costumes can be donated and used again. It’s a sustainable way to keep the celebration going!

#4: Your Old Car or Riding Lawn Mower

That’s right, Ohio Valley Goodwill accepts vehicle donations in Cincinnati! If your first mow of the season stalls out, or your old car is sitting idle in the garage, now’s the time to clear them out. Ohio Valley Goodwill accepts donations of cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, riding lawn mowers, and motorcycles. If they won’t budge on their own, we’ll even arrange for a free tow!

Giving your old items new life by donating them to Goodwill is a sustainable choice. Your decision to donate keeps items out of the landfill and eliminates the waste that is created when manufacturing new items.
