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.

The next few months will be filled with family gatherings to celebrate the upcoming holidays. It’s easy to get swept away in the holiday rush, but the day before guests arrive is no time to sort through drawers and clean out closets.Family With Grandparents Enjoying Thanksgiving Meal At Table

Focus on decluttering public areas like the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Remove unnecessary clutter off of counters and tables.

Of course, if you have the time it is best to do a full organizing sweep but if you’re in a pinch bag up the clutter and store it in the basement or out-of-the-way closet and sort after the guests depart.

Regardless of when you get your organizing done GreenDrop will be there to clear the clutter! Give us a call before or after the holidays to pick up the things you no longer need. Or you can drop-off at our donation centers any day of the week. Either way, GreenDrop will handle all the heavy lifting and provide you with a tax receipt. When you donate to GreenDrop you’re clearing the clutter from you home and helping national charity organizations.

Here are a few of our tips to organize your home around the holidays.
