Follow these tips for minimizing the time needed to sort and maximizing the money earned for missions!


  1. Don’t hide fragile items in the middle of a bag of clothing. The chances of them breaking is high.


  1. Wrap fragile items well in bubble wrap or several layers of newsprint before placing them in a box.


  1. Pack “like with like” – ie books with books, miscellaneous kitchen tools in one box, craft and sewing items with other craft and sewing items.


  1. Label boxes and bags – Housewares, Crafts, Toys, Books, etc. Even better – women’s tops, men’s pants, etc.


  1. Attach all parts to appliances with tape or a Ziplock bag attached with tape, or all together in one box.


  1. Please take a second look at the list of items we DON’T take. These items often just end up in the dumpster.
