THE CITY MISSION ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH WWW.DONATESTUFF.COM
April 1, 2014
Beginning April 1, The City Mission in Cleveland will be a new charity partner of www.DonateStuff.com. Through an agreement with the parent company Lakes Management, Inc., The City Mission will receive financial support when an individual donates clothing and/or household items either by arranging a pickup of the items through www.DonateStuff.com or responding positively when called by a Lakes Management solicitor on behalf of the Mission.
The donation program accomplishes four important objectives simultaneously:
1. Provides needed support for The City Mission, a privately-funded crisis center/urban ministry which last year provided nearly 114,000 meals and 73,000 nights of lodging to 1,950 men, women and children in crisis in Northeast Ohio.
2. Provides access to gently used clothing and household items available at bargain prices through local thrift stores, in the Greater Cleveland area. Creates local job through the collection, processing and resale of materials that would otherwise create no value in the landfill.
3. Keeps clothing and household items out of landfill and positively impacts the environment. Americans throw away 20 billion pounds of clothing each year, and virtually all of it can be repurposed or recycled.
City Mission CEO, Rev. Rich Trickel stated “We’re delighted to partner with DonateStuff.com on the clothing/household item donation program. The partnership will help us meet basic human needs of food, clothing, and shelter for men, women and children in crisis as we stabilize this population and ultimately empower them to become self-sufficient.”
The new partnership with The City Mission by DonateStuff.com follows another community partnership with Discount Drug Mart that began last year. On July 1, 2013, Discount Drug Mart shopping bags began featuring the DonateStuff.com logo and clothing donation program information in an effort to bring greater exposure to their charitable and eco-friendly efforts in the community. “We are extremely appreciative of Discount Drug Mart’s partnership to let the Northern Ohio Community know about our free and easy clothing donation program. When people donate clothing on DonateStuff.com, they are helping charities in need, creating local jobs and benefiting the environment,” said Jason Burke, Manager at Donatestuff.com.

As distant it may seem at the moment, spring is around the corner. Springtime is high season for garage sales and however successful they may be, there is always “stuff” left over that can be put to good use.

As the 2013 school year drew to a close at Case Western Reserve University near Cleveland last week, the DonateStuff.com crew took flight to be part of their impressive #RezCycle program. As the student body moved out of their dorms, collection boxes were filled with clothing and usable items that may have otherwise been sent to landfills.
“We are sincerely appreciative of this partnership and the student body’s high level of participation in this great program!” stated Scott Shaffer, a member of the DonateStuff.com Team.
If you are interested in partnering with DonateStuff.com to run a collection drive at your school, office or community, please contact Scott at Scott@DonateStuff.com

The tax man is knocking on your door!
By the end of the day, we hope you all have filed your taxes (or at least an extension.) Every year, the inevitable swift approach of April 15th springs upon us like a cheetah, leaving many of us in a frenzy to gather our tax documents and file our taxes to get the maximum refund.
Did you donate clothing or other household items in 2012? If YES, where is that darn tax receipt?!
We thought of this pesky problem and have made it easier than ever for you! If you schedule your donation on DonateStuff.com, we store your donation history and tax receipt on your profile. Just login in and print them out!
If NO, that’s a bummer.
If you didn’t donate clothing or other unwanted items in 2012, you may have missed out on turning stuff you haven’t worn in ages into a valuable tax deduction.
Either way, there is no time like the present to start planning for April 15, 2014. It will be here in no time. Schedule your donation today and claim your maximum deduction for the 2013 at DonateStuff.com.
