One of the best things about the new year is that it gives you a chance to have a fresh start. As you begin to clean up for the holidays and begin 2021 on the right foot, now is the perfect time to look through the items in your home that no longer spark joy and make a few donations in Austin. While Goodwill is always a great place to drop off your unwanted items, there are some other local organizations to check out.
Music equipment, supplies, and instruments are always needed at Anthropos Arts, where low-income kids are connected with professional musicians to learn musical skills and keep them in school.
Austin Creative Reuse
Have any leftover items you used for a creative project that you know you won’t be using, but happen to be taking up valuable space in your home? Austin Creative Reuse collects clean and reusable supplies for the creative community in Austin, and they accept anything from fabric and yarn to beads and paint.
Austin Habitat for Humanity ReStore
If you have furniture, appliances, apparel, electronics, etc. to donate, the Austin ReStore is a great option. Your donations play a key part in how Austin Habitat for Humanity builds homes with local families.
Austin Pets Alive! Thrift Store
Many Austin residents know about Austin Pets Alive! and their initiative to get rid of kill shelters, but there’s also an Austin Pets Alive! Thrift Store that helps fund finding homes for the animals in their shelter.
Caritas of Austin
Food, toiletries, and household items are just some of the items that Caritas of Austin is accepting. These items help provide stable assistance to those in Austin who are experiencing homelessness.
Dress for Success
Dress for Success is looking for gently used, nearly-new professional attire in order to help women secure employment. The clothing and shoes give women in need the confidence to make a great first impression and potentially land their dream job.
