Goodwill picks up large donations such as furniture or other large items that individuals have trouble taking to a drop-off location. Contact the local Goodwill store to find out if donation pickup is available. Goodwill does not pick up small donations such as clothes, shoes or toys, and those should be dropped off at a local drop-off location.
Vietnam Veterans of America is more flexible and picks up smaller item donations from residential or commercial locations. The charity picks up clothing, accessories, shoes, bedding and housewares. The charity also picks up toys, bicycles, small appliances and electronics. However, Vietnam Veterans of America does not pick up large furniture or mattresses. A donation pickup can be scheduled online. Items should be placed into bags labeled with "VVA" and left outside the building for an unaccompanied pickup.
The Habitat for Humanity picks up large furniture donations in most locations. Contact the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.Learn more about Business & Finance
