Are you looking for a Purple Heart charity pick up? This is possible by contacting GreenDrop, which has mobile trailers that can collect your clothing and household items. During an average week, GreenDrop collects over 100 tons of donations on behalf of The Military Order of the Purple Heart. As a result, these item don’t end up in the country’s landfills, and can be given new life or recycled.

There are also roughly 30 free-standing GreenDrop locations where you can take your Purple Heart donations. If you’re not sure what to donate, a short list of items includes clothes, electronics, and household goods such as textiles, dishes, and small appliances.

You’re probably aware that donations made to the Purple Heart benefit veterans and their families. Since the Purple Heart is a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status, you can write your charitable donations off on your taxes. In order to write off donations that exceed a value of $250.00, however, the IRS requires a receipt. This will be provided to you at the time of your donation.

If you’re curious about how to itemize the value of charitable donations, here are a few examples:

  • Men’s overcoats: $60.00
  • Men’s suits: $60.00
  • Coffee makers: $4.00 to $15.00

Since the average American purchases twice as many clothing items as they did 20 years ago, it’s likely that some of this clothing will only be worn occasionally. If, for example, you have seasonal clothing items that you or your family members haven’t worn in 6 months or so, you may want to collect them for a Purple Heart charity pick up.

Are you one of the 15% of Americans that recycle or donate their used clothing on a regular basis? If so, then you are probably aware that 45% of the donations that you and others like you make can be worn again. Many Americans are inspired to make charitable donations by reading social media posts.

In fact, 70% of social media users actually respond to posts that offer support to wounded veterans and their families. In addition to donating themselves, they may also encourage others to do so by spreading the word on their other social media groups.

Whether you contact GreenDrop for a donation pick up or take your donations to a convenient drop off site, remember that you are helping wounded veterans charities. Furthermore, you are also making a contribution to the community within which you live.
