I was thinking maybe big brother big sister? I like them and everything but IDK I was thinking maybe something to do with sick children or something...

 

I have a lot of stuff to donate...dishes, toys, clothes, boxes of "collectibles" or that sort of thing mostly comic-like things so i guess toys? Well I think whatever charity would come and get all of it would be best and it's not junk some of it is definately worth some money.

 

any great charities that could really use this stuff or sell it for money, that would possible pick it up? I am in the Northbridge if that matters.

I think if you donate it to Savers ( which is BBBS, i think?) don't they give you a reciept for your tax donation?

Big Sister Big Brother does pick up and leaves a receipt for taxes.  You can go to their website and call them to schedule a pickup time, and then on the day of you just leave everything out front and they take it.

Yes, the Savers in Plymouth donates to BBBSF (Big Brother Big Sister Foundation) and will give you a receipt if you request one.  BBBSF also does pickups and in some area has drop boxes- you get a receipt with the pickups.

 

I used to work at Big Sister and was a mentor, too with the TEAM program.  Wonderful program(-:

 

Here's the BBBSF website:
