Evidenced-based treatments can reduce the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in about half of the veterans who suffer them. While peer support and some brief interventions are helpful, Vietnam Veterans of America advocates for or continuing-care models with trained clinicians to help more veterans cope long-term. Your generous #donations of used clothing and household items to ClothingDonations.org can help fund such advocacy efforts and improvements in care.
ClothingDonations.org had to temporarily suspend #donation #pickups early in the #pandemic, but we’re back and better than ever! You can still donate your extra clothing, baby items, small appliances, kitchenware, furniture and electronics from the comfort and safety of your home. Just schedule a contactless pickup online and place the boxed and bagged items in the designated location that morning. A masked driver will collect your extra stuff and leave a receipt for your records.
The #coronavirus is thought to have a lifespan of less than one day on porous surfaces such as fabrics, according to epidemiologists. But if you wish to #donate lightly used clothing and are concerned that your items could be contaminated with #COVID-19, Best Life says you should wash them before #donating. Use regular detergent and the warmest washer and dryer settings you can safely use on the items, then bag them up and contact ClothingDonations.org for a free, contactless #donation pickup.
Scientists have learned a lot in the year since COVID-19 first began to spread in the United States. For one thing, the coronavirus doesn’t last very long on hard surfaces, Nature says, so the risk of catching it through touch is low. That means you can safely #donate clothing, books and household goods to a #charity like you did before the #pandemic. And pickups are safer than ever; when you schedule ClothingDonations.org, a masked driver will collect your used goods from your porch with a free, contactless pickup.
Stuck spending lots of time at home? instead of binge-watching Netflix (again), consider doing a good #decluttering. It not only make your space more liveable, but you can take any lightly used clothing and household items that you no longer need and #donate them to help veterans get through the #COVID-19 #pandemic. Just visit ClothingDonations.org to schedule a #pickup online. Donation pickups are easy, contactless and tax-deductible way to get rid of that extra stuff.
