Who Does Green Drop Serve?
As one of the largest charitable groups in the Delaware Valley, Green Drop is on a mission to help non-profit organizations fulfill their missions and bring comfort to the people they serve. These organizations include:
- The American Red Cross
- The National Federation of the Blind
- The Military Order of the Purple Heart
- The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia
How Does it Work?
Creating a fast and convenient way to help, Green Drop collects your tax-deductible items before selling them to affiliate thrift stores throughout the region. These funds are then distributed to the charities listed above.
With over 30 drop-off locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Virginia, Green Drop makes giving quick and easy. Simply call ahead or drop by during posted hours to receive your tax-deductible receipt.
Have a lot of stuff to donate? Green Drop can send a moving truck to your driveway. Arrange a pickup date via their website to make your spring cleaning a breeze!
Green Drop even offers a special Home Clean-Out service where a professional team can come to your home, pack, and remove large volumes of donations. This service requires arranging an initial consultation with a trained concierge to determine your eligibility.
What Type of Items Does Green Drop Accept?
For the sake of space, all donated items should weigh under 50 pounds. For environmental reasons, older TV sets, cell phones, and computer monitors aren’t accepted. If you have questions about a specific item, a Green Drop representative can help make a determination. Accepted donation items include:
- Lightly worn clothing and shoes
- Small furniture
- Kitchenware, small appliances, and tools
- Electronics and collectibles
- Games/toys, musical instruments, and sporting goods
