Moving Made Easy Downsizing Tips

Donating your unwanted clothing and personal items can be a win-win in that your good deed benefits a person in need and likely a cause you support.

Your donation can also qualify as a charitable donation for tax purposes. The contribution must be to a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Churches, religious organizations, government entities, and nonprofits such as Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and American Red Cross fall into this category.  Learn more at: https://www.irs.gov/publications/p561
