Salvation Army or goodwill

Posted by   + Show Post
I have around 700 hundred pieces of clothing to donate, shoes, couches, other furniture, and baby items. Which one benefits communities better and which is less of a hassle to get the tax deduction from?

Goodwill. Or a women's shelter. I will not support The Salvation Army.

 guilty conscience much? you asked about tax deductions and where to get one without hassle and i simply answered that we didn't do that. i wasn't being snide at all. i was answering a question that you asked on here, if you noticed I also said that we donate to our local community mission, i didn't just mention the tax deductions.

Quoting CM_Junkie:

It was a snide and judgmental comment plain and obvious.


Quoting mary841108:

 wasn't judging, just saying.


Quoting CM_Junkie:

The tax deduction is going to a family in need. Don't judge before you know the facts



Quoting mary841108:


 i donate to our local community mission, dh works there so he can take it in with him in the morning. as for tax deductions, i dont donate to get something out of it, we never do the tax thing. i donate because i want to not to get money out of it.

Salvation Army.  They are the ones that come to help you after a house fire or tragedy.

I'd go for a women's shelter first, then I'd just go for whoever will come pick it all up.

Actually, it is completely legal to discriminate against people based on sexuality. And the SA does it all the time.

Quoting Anonymous:

Pretty sure that's illegal and inaccurate.

Quoting Mamasomedaysoon:

I don't know but I heard the salvation army won't offer help/ hire you if you are gay.

We always donate to the DI.

This was originally a yard sale over a year ago. People are nasty around here so I just don't want to deal with that anymore. I'm just going to help others out instead but thank you for your suggestion

They try to recruit people they help and will not help them anymore if they dont follow their rules.

True but that doesn't mean they don't get help if they need it.
