GreenDrop has been selected by the American Red Cross, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, the National Federation of the Blind and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia, to raise funds through the generation and collection of donated clothing and household items. Donated items are converted into critical dollars for these organizations, to assist them in upholding their mission and programs for supporting American veterans, the nation’s blind and neighbors in need throughout Philadelphia.
Tax-deductible donations of clothing and household items are collected by GreenDrop on behalf of the American Red Cross, Military Order of the Purple Heart, the National Federation of the Blind and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Philadelphia. Donations are sold by the charities to 2nd Ave, an affiliate company, as well as other thrift operators. In 2018, charity proceeds from the sale of the donated goods to the thrift stores exceeded $3.1 million. This was approximately 40% of net income, and enabled GreenDrop and the charities to support programs locally and nationwide.
