Donate during the holiday season

Holiday shopping has officially begun! While stores are packed with holiday shoppers and deals, it is also important to think about giving back to the community when you can. Whether you’re short on space or want to do a simple act of kindness, find a thrift store to donate near me and start the holiday season off right!

What to donate

With the cold weather and the holidays in mind, thrift stores have a need for anything and everything! It’s no secret that winters in the Midwest are cold and snowy, if you have any extra winter coats, gloves, hats or scarves, those are always great to donate. Donating these makes them accessible for families who wouldn’t have been able to afford to stay warm this winter season. 

Why to donate

Holiday sales are almost nonstop from November to December! This means a lot of people are buying new rather than secondhand. When you donate items, you are increasing their lifespan beyond what it would be if you were just throwing them away. When you donate, you aren’t only helping the environment by decreasing the amount of clogged landfills but you are also helping the less fortunate find more affordable items that they need for day-to-day life.
