When you’re looking through your house for things to donate, your closet is probably the first place that comes to mind. However, there are plenty of other places in your house that could do with a little spring cleaning. Your kitchen is probably one of them, and the good news is kitchenware is highly requested when it comes to donations. There are a few types of kitchenware you can donate and we’ll show you what they are so you can make the right decision for your kitchen.
Everyone needs a way to prepare food and your old pots and pans may be exactly what’s needed to facilitate that. This category also includes items such as baking pans, glassware, bowls, and plates. You may not need these items anymore, but they can help make someone else’s life a little bit easier.
If you’ve recently remodeled your kitchen or just got some new silverware and flatware to match a new design scheme, you are going to have a lot of leftovers that you don’t know what to do with. Rather than let them collect dust somewhere, you can donate these items instead. Consider donating:
- Spoons, knives, and forks
- Serving trays
When it comes to kitchenware you can donate, the easiest to let go of might be storage containers. Tupperware and the like are all extremely useful for keeping and storing food. A donation like this may go to a soup kitchen or shelter, or it could go directly to those most in need. The average person probably has more storage containers than they know what to do with; by donating these items, you keep them out of a landfill and in the hands of those who need them.
Small Kitchen Appliances
We obviously aren’t implying that you should rip your oven out of the wall just to have something to donate, but smaller appliances can be incredibly useful to a shelter that wants to speed up their process. Microwaves, toaster ovens, automatic slicers, blenders, and other appliances roughly the same size make great donations and will see a lot of use even after you’ve let them go.
At Green Drop, we strive to make the donation process as fast and hassle-free as possible. When you’re looking for charity organizations that pick up donations, keep Green Drop in mind for your next haul.
