The Military Order of the Purple Heart and GreenDrop are charities that accept various items as donations to raise funds and provide amenities for different military families in need, as well as other participants in national and local charities, such as the National Federation of the Blind and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia. Both organizations accept a variety of common home items, such as clothing, shoes, bedding, kitchenware and electronics. GreenDrop redistributes some of these items to families and individuals in need or sends them to other organizations and locations for resale.
