Spring Cleaning? Local Non-Profit Organizations Accepting Donations


March is here! And for some families, that means the “spring cleaning” is here too. Do you participate in spring cleaning?

It’s a great time to get rid of the kids’ Christmas junk, just kidding (but not really). And it’s also a great way to help your kids think about serving others. Honestly, for the last couple of years, I’ve been trying to clean out our house and purge items more often, not just in spring. With three growing kids, it’s a must to be sorting through clothes, toys, and gear constantly. Consequently, I’ve gotten good at cleaning and getting items ready to donate. But then I would parade the boxes and bags in my trunk for weeks. Sound familiar?

Here is a go-to list of places accepting donations, which will hopefully help clear out those full trunks.
