At GreenDrop we are constantly striving to bring our fast and easy donation process to as many new places as possible. We are proud of our business model and as we expand into new areas we enjoy meeting our new neighbors and telling them about all things GreenDrop!
We recently expanded into 3 new areas: Metuchen, NJ; Richmond, VA and Willow Grove, PA. Incase you haven’t gotten the chance to get to know us yet; we thought we’d answer a few common questions off the bat.
How does it work?
GreenDrop is an organization selected by the Military Order of the Purple Heart, the National Federation of the Blind and the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul to raise funds through the generation and collection of donated clothing and household goods.
Whether you’re using our home pickup service or dropping off at one of our freestanding charitable donation locations, GreenDrop will handle all the logistics. When the time comes to donate, give us a call at 1-888-944-DROP and one of our friendly call agents will assist you in scheduling a home donation pickup. There’s also an online form you can fill out at your own convenience. On the day of your charity pickup leave your labeled donations outside of your home and we’ll pick them up and provide tax-deductible documentation of from the charity of your choosing!
Ready to donate right now? Visit one our GreenDrop locations. We currently have over 20 locations from Connecticut to Virginia. To find a location nearest you visit our website. When you’re ready to donate bring your items to one of our convenient locations where you will be greeted by an attendant who will unload your items from your vehicle and provide a tax receipt from your selected charity.
Hours of operation?
You can donate to any of our locations during the following days and hours:
Monday-Friday 8 am to 8 pm
Saturday 8 am to 6 pm
Sunday 10 am to 6 pm
As for home pickups, our GreenDrop trucks are on the road from 7 am to 7pm each day. On the day of your charity pickup place your donations outside before 7 am and GreenDrop will come collect them rain or shine!
How are donations converted into funds?
Donating clothing directly to charities is a great way to support people in need. But charities can do so much more in fulfilling their missions when they are funded properly. That is why many charities seek help from a 3rd party fundraiser. GreenDrop markets and collects goods for our charities. From there, our partner charities sell donation in area thrift stores or recycle them depending on their quality. This allows our partner charities to expand their missions and keep unwanted items out of our landfills.
How much of the funds converted go to charities?
GreenDrop is proud to share that 100% of funds from donated items go directly to our partner charities. Last year GreenDrop helped raise over $2.5 million.
