It is not always easy to find a lupus donation pickup service. The Internet can be a great tool in helping you do so. The following is a list of websites which you can visit that will help you find someone to pick up your donations:
Scheduling your pickups online helps to keep costs down because there is less paperwork involved. It is also easier to reschedule appointments and to retrieve your receipts for your taxes. Most pick up services have switched to this method, although some would still rather hear from you by telephone.
Making a Lupus Donation
Making a lupus donation is easier than you think. As said before, most places will pick up your donations for you. However, pick ups are not available in areas. For example, the Lupus Foundation of America will only have a lupus donation pickup program in Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia. If you do live in one of these areas, you can make a lupus foundation donation by visiting the website or calling 1-800-45-8787. Right now they are asking for donations of clothing, shoes, bedding items, house ware, glassware, jewelry, cosmetics, toys, games, and much more. They will not accept furniture or other large items.
Another good place to make a lupus clothing donation is Donation Town. They are far more widespread too. This is because they work with different charities across the nation to pick up your items for you. If they don’t pick up in your area, all you have to do is let them know of a charity nearby and they will contact them.
Good Donor is another organization that supports multiple charities. Through this site you can make a lupus foundation location pickup. This site accepts clothing, furniture, shoes, household goods, kitchenware, and sporting goods for lupus donation pick up.
Making the Best of Things
If you cannot find a website that shows they are able to pick up in your area, make the best of things and give your local charities a call. Just because they don’t normally do it (or they don’t advertise that they do) that doesn’t mean they won’t pick up donations for you. Also, you may want to inform them about sites like Donation Town which helps charities gain more by helping them establish pick up services. While you’re at it, see if there are any that donate to lupus specifically. If they don’t, maybe they should.
