Moving Into a New Home? Becker Movers Suggests Donating Unneeded Items December 12, 2014

Moving Into a New Home? Becker Movers Suggests Donating Unneeded Items, Rochester, New York

Moving is always a stressful time, especially when sorting through items and figuring out what to keep and what to give away. Becker Movers recommends asking yourself whether you or someone else will benefit more from an item you’re debating about. Check out a few suggestions on what to do with assorted pieces you’d like to rid yourself of:

  • Shelters: In possession of extra blankets, clothing and other products local homeless and women’s shelters would benefit from? Give them a call to find out what they need. Shelters for our four-legged friends also need supplies, so consider donating old towels, sheets and other bedding to needy dogs and cats.
  • Schools: Have old computers and electronics to toss? Instead of adding them to a landfill, contact area schools to determine if they need any tech items you own.
  • Family & Friends: Why not give items away to family and friends? Have everyone over for a potluck dinner, put all “give away” items on a table, and let your friends choose what they'd like. If there are a lot of items, hold a garage sale in your neighborhood.
  • Thrift Stores: Many thrift options benefit a worthy cause, so feel free to check out donation guidelines, and get a receipt if desired for tax deduction purposes.
