How It Works

How It Works

GreenDrop® is easy, convenient, eco-friendly.

GreenDrop® accepts gently used clothing and household goods on behalf of a number of charitable organizations, including American Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sister of Long Island Donation Center, Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation, National Federation of the Blind, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia.

You can schedule a home pick-up or you can bring your items to a convenient GreenDrop® location — where an onsite attendant will remove them from your vehicle. After we receive your donations (thank you), you can download a tax receipt for your records.
