To observe National POW/MIA Recognition Day, attend a local memorial event, visit the grave of a veteran or spend some personal time with a former POW or veteran. Veterans appreciate the recognition; visit the local veterans home or hospital to spread good cheer or contribute to veterans. ClothingDonations.org makes it easy to #donate to #veterans causes — simply contact it to arrange a #free #donation #pickup of used #clothing and #household goods. We’ll resell that lightly used, unwanted stuff and give the money to a range of programs that help veterans of every U.S. conflict. #POW/MIA
The Organizing Blog regularly espouses the benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling used clothing and household goods, and you can slash waste even as you buy #holiday #gifts for family and friends. Utopia.org suggests a variety of ecofriendly gifts such as a reusable water bottle to cut plastic waste, a donation to an environmental preservation group or planting a tree. But best gift of all this season, the site says, is the gift of time. It’s hard to come by and incredibly valuable, and spending a few hours or sharing a meal with family and friends will make an unforgettable gift. #SustainableShopping
Vietnam Veterans of America will pick up many of your used and unwanted things, including televisions!
Here are a few things to note before scheduling your pick-up:
1. VVA cannot accept console televisions.
2. All televisions must be in good working condition.
3. Most locations do accept portable televisions that are no larger than 27″, but it’s a good idea to call the pick-up service in your area to confirm.
4. All flat screen televisions are accepted.
Schedule a pick-up today and remember, your used things help veterans of all eras!
