The Salvation Army, Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation and Vietnam Veterans of America are three charities that provide pick-up services. Individuals can visit the websites of these charities in order to schedule pickups. The websites detail what items are accepted.
To schedule a free donations pick-up from the Salvation Army, go to SATruck.org. On the home page, you can either click on the red Donate button at the top right-hand corner of the page or type your ZIP code into the search bar under the Schedule A Free Pickup heading. The website then provides you with a list where you can indicate what you want to donate. Choose your items, and then choose a pickup date on the website's calendar.
The Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation accepts clothes, shoes, collectibles, kitchenware and other household items for needy American veterans. You can schedule a pickup by entering your ZIP code and choosing a pickup date. The Vietnam Veterans of America provides a similar service in the states of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. As with the other two charity websites, enter your ZIP code to begin the process. Pick-ups are available for free, and the charity can also provide you with a tax deductible receipt.
