There are often many items that go unused in our own house or our living circumstances may change. Those large or small items are the items that are needed within our own community. Thank you for taking the time to take those household items out that are stashed away in the back of a closet or cupboard. Your generosity benefits others in need.  CANNOT accept large appliances, toys, mattresses, office desks or file cabinets, computers or other electronics nor any items that are outdated, torn, stained, broken or otherwise damamged.

    My daughter may need my help moving that day. If list fills up, certainly you may put someone in my place.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
