How It Works

How It Works

GreenDrop is the fast and easy way to donate.

GreenDrop provides the most convenient way to donate gently used clothing and household goods to assist charitable programs for American Red Cross, Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation, National Federation of the Blind, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia.

When it is time to donate, you can schedule a home pick-up or you can bring your items to a convenient GreenDrop location — where a friendly attendant will remove them from your vehicle and email you a tax receipt from your selected charity.
