Seems that we’re all ready to look ahead to warmer weather — free up some space, change up the décor, head outdoors… That means “spring cleaning” – purging of unused items.
Whether you host a tag sale like we did for Relay for Life or just remove the items – DON’T THROW OUT! Someone else can use it!
Many organizations benefit from your gently worn household goods, clothes, and even unwanted treasures.
Some suggestions of places to donate:
