The holidays are officially here and that means exchanging lots and lots of gifts with the people you love! While you’re in this whirlwind of excitement making room for these presents and surprises, it could be tempting to just throw out your old, unused things and get them out of site.
However, while you’re preparing for new things, there are plenty of people in need out there who could make great use of the things you no longer have a need for! To make donating even easier, we have curated a list of charities in Palm Beach County for all of your donation needs!
Speak Up for Kids of Palm Beach County – West Palm Beach, FL
This is the perfect place to donate your used — but still working — electronics. They are always looking to help children with school and employment opportunities, which is why they need these types of donations!
Computer skills are required when going to school and getting a job and, since not everyone has access to that kind of technology, this is a great place to drop off your old electronics and make way for new ones.
Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, Inc. – Delray Beach, FL
Most victims stay in a toxic relationship because they don’t think that they could ever make it on their own, which is why AVDA makes it their mission to help the survivors of abuse. They accept clothing, furniture, home goods, functioning appliances, cabinets, lighting, and building materials to make starting a new life easier and less daunting. This holiday season, consider donating to AVDA to make someone’s holiday special.
Boca Helping Hands – Boca Raton, FL
The holidays often turn into one giant food fest, but for some, that isn’t the case. When you’re stocking your cabinets with holiday goodies, consider donating the leftover nonperishables. This charity provides six hot lunches and one family dinner each week to families in need.
Additionally, during the holidays, they put together holiday food preparation boxes to give to families in order to help them cook their own holiday meals.
Don’t Exclusively Donate During the Holidays
These three charities are just a few of the multitude of charities that cover all of your donating needs. While you’re cleaning out your home to make way for new stuff, we encourage you to explore your local charities to see how you can help; after all, this is the season of giving!
However, you don’t have to limit your donations to the Holiday Season! Moving is the perfect opportunity to clean house and keep the stuff that you truly need! When that time comes, Meehan’s Family moving will be here for you. Contact us here or give us a call at (561) 904-6000. From our family to yours, have a happy holiday season!
