Donate to Charity
Odds & Ends
- Type your area code at www.inkindex.com, a free Internet matching service, and a list of goods requested by local nonprofits pops up. If you have what they need, you contact them and arrange to drop it off or have them pick it up.
- Match your giveaways (rugs, art, furniture) with nonprofits in your area that need them at www.access.com. A $10 registration fee allows you to post your offerings and view organizations' wish lists. Recipients take care of the pickup.
- Gifts for Sight (www.giftsforsight.org) will take almost anything—even old cars and boats—which it then sells to fund medical research. Call 800-329-6441 to arrange for free pickup.
