Not only does Trustee Help, Inc. donate during the holiday season, we donate year round. We successfully use the good resources from estates and pass them on to organizations that will put them to good use.
However, there is a dark side……….
In the sorting areas of non-profits large and small there are piles and containers full of awful, dirty, broken things that were “Donated“. Its great to be help out, yet how useful is a torn up pair of socks? Or the chipped glassware? Seriously.
Non-profits need good socks, safe dishware and all of the generosity that we can give. They appreciate it and we feel good about helping community programs.
So the next time you consider donating think of the following guideline:
“Am I giving a gift or a burden?” and be honest!
