Last weekend we had the opportunity to participate in the 50 Plus Expo, hosted by Pennsylvania State Representative Duane Milne. Milne has held the event by for his constituents since he took office in Fall 2007.
In previous years the event was held at Immaculata University but in order to accommodate the 62 businesses and 500 attendees it was moved to K.D. Markley Elementary School in Malvern, PA.
On Saturday, October 24, from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. GreenDrop joined multiple state, local and nonprofit organizations offering services geared towards people 50 and older. Services included vaccines, memory screenings, shredding and veteran’s benefits. Light fare was served and the Forty Niners Chorus sang patriotic melodies to the crowd.
At GreenDrop our mission is to make the donation process as simple and convenient as possible, especially for our donors who may need assistance giving to their favorite charity.
We help our donors give in three ways:
First, we have our free home pickup service. When it’s time to donate our donors can go online or call us at 1-888-944-DROP to schedule a charity home pickup. On the scheduled date, donors leave their labeled donations outside for their charity of their choosing (The National Federation of the Blind, The Military Order of the Purple Heart or The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Philadelphia) and our GreenDrop trucks go out and collect the donations.
For our donors that prefer to bring their donations directly to GreenDrop we have our freestanding, drive-up charitable donation locations. When our donors pull in they are greeted by one of our friendly GreenDrop attendants who will unload their donations and provide them with tax-deductible document from the charity of their choosing. Our donors have plenty of sites to pick from with more than 20 GreenDrop locations from and Connecticut to Virginia and a plan to grow.
And last but not least, we have our Home Clean Out Concierge, another free service that helps donors that may have large volume donations. This service is perfect for people that are 50 and older because it is geared towards donors who may be downsizing, preparing for a move and home cleanouts. We send out our professional concierge to help you pack and prepare for our drivers to pick up you donation.
Whether our donors are using our home pickup service, dropping-off at a GreenDrop location or using our home cleanout concierge for large volume donations, GreenDrop handles all of the logistics and of course, provides tax-receipts from our partner charities.
