Too much stuff from the holidays? Places to donate goods before the end of the year!


Stuff piling up after the holidays? Kids get plenty of new stuff and now you need to clear out the old stuff? Rather than just chucking the stuff in the trash or sending a massive pile to the thrift store, here are a few specific places that could use your hand-me-downs!



Unloading Books, CDs, or DVDs?

The Indy Reads Books store, located downtown, is a prime location to donate your items! Their mission supports adult and family literacy in Central Indiana. The profits from the bookstore go directly towards sharing the gift of reading with adult learners.


Gently Used Clothing or Home Items?

Consider dropping off your unneeded clothing or household items, like dishes, decor, or furniture, to the Julian Center’s Thrifty Threads store! The Julian Center supports victims of domestic violence and those people who may be fleeing abusive situations with few items or resources. Your donations could go to help someone recovering and restarting their lives.


Too many canned goods for holiday meals?

Perhaps you planned for an epic holiday meal and bought way too many canned goods or non-perishables to prepare and now, for whatever reason, your cabinets are packed! The Food Pantry at The Damien Center is always accepting canned goods and other unopened products for their food pantry.


Overflowing with toys?

With Santa’s generous holiday delivery, it’s likely you need to clear out some old toys and games to make room for the new ones! Depending on what kind of toys you have, they could be put to use in a few different places. Call your nearest Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, or even a homeless shelter! They may be able to put your old board games (with all their pieces, of course), clean stuffed animals, and Lego sets to good use. If no specific place is accepting those items, try your nearest Goodwill or Salvation Army location.



Also: Freecycle or Craigslist Free Page

If you have a bunch of stuff sitting around your house and you just need it out, look up the Indianapolis Freecycle page or list your stuff on the Craigslist Free Page. Usually, minimal details are required - just list your part of town, what you have, and that someone needs to come pick it up! It’s easy! Photos are helpful, but not required!


Don’t let the clutter overwhelm you this holiday season! Whatever trash you have, might be someone else’s treasure. Your unneeded items could make a world of difference for someone else! Consider donating your items where they may do more good than just sitting on a shelf!
