Give something a away with GreenDrop

Tomorrow is Give Something Away Day. Most of us are lucky enough to have more than what we need to live. National Give Something Away Day allows us to share some of our abundance with others.

You can choose to buy someone a coffee, volunteer your time, or donate items you no longer need to charity. GreenDrop represents some of the best charities to donate to and collects clothing donations on their behalf. read more  >>

Gearing up for the 6 Dot Dash

As we mentioned earlier this week, we will be sponsoring this year’s 6 Dot Dash hosted by our partner, The National Federation of Blind. Now in its 5th year, the 6 Dot Dash is a competitive 6K run/walk through Inner Harbor of Baltimore.

This race is just one of the ways the National Federation the Blind shows their Baltimore community and the world that blindness doesn’t hold you back. Each year NFB supporters, staff and volunteers come together in addition to members of the local community to participate in the street race to raise money for and promote Braille literacy and opportunities for the blind people across the country.

Celebrate Earth Day with GreenDrop

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated worldwide on April 22nd. Since 1970, various events have been held on this day to demonstrate support for environmental protection.Green Recycling Symbol with Earth in Centre

GreenDrop strives to protect the environment every day by collecting peoples’ unwanted items for charity and keeping unnecessary clothing and household goods out of landfills. Donated items are repurposed or recycled by our partner charity organizations to raise funds for their missions or programs.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to help recycle, repurpose and reuse 100 tons of donated clothing and lightly used household goods each week!  That has the same positive effect of planting 13,900 mature trees each year!

There are plenty of ways you can support the environment on Earth Day and beyond.
