Recommended: Charities That Pick Up Furniture, Clothing & Other Items

Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. We want to share on All Life Is Local, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "computer tech," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need. The search box, in case you have trouble finding it, is to the right and down a bit.
I routinely unload clothing and other items to Vietnam Vets of America  and the National Childrens Center (Value Village).  They call me periodically when they have a truck in the area, but  you can also call to schedule a pick-up. If you have a place to leave donations for them to pick up easily, you don't have to take your donations anywhere.

In addition to Vietnam Vets and the National Children's Center, there are two other organizations that will pick up furniture and other household goods.  Donations must be in good but not necessarily mint condition. I recommend that you contact either Goodwill (202-715-2633) or the Salvation Army (301-403-1704) to find out what the requirements are to get your furniture picked up.
