Donate Multiple Items Things

Donate multiple items to the needy…

Many among India’s poor and underprivileged are short of multipole items for basic living. Organisations and NGOs running orphanages, old-age homes, children's homes, shelters, schools for underprivileged etc too need a wide range of items, right from utensils to blankets. Donated new items or second-hand goods which are in usable condition are of real help to such individuals and organisations. Donating used items also promotes the eco-friendly concept of recycling. What is waste for you is resource for the less fortunate. So instead of throwing away something, donate it!

Some of the most useful items for the needy are clothes, footwear, bags, suitcases, bedsheets, blankets, books, stationary, utensils, mobile phones, appliances, electronic items etc. In addition, groceries, fruits and vegetables are required on a ongoing regular basis.

How are the donated goods taken care of?

The received goods are sorted out and cleaned. Appliances and electronics items are repaired, if they are non-functional.  Thereafter the items are packed and transported for distribution either directly to rural poor and urban slum-dwellers or to NGOs running residential schools for the underprivileged, orphanages, homes for elderly etc.

Collection methods vary widely and are dependent on every organisation’s resources. Some organisations have set-up drop-off points in cities where the used goods can be handed over. Drop-off points can be found in housing societies, malls etc which are manned by volunteers. In other cases, a donor can contact the organisation on phone and their volunteer will meet the donor at a convenient place and collect the goods. Occasionally, depending on quantity, some organisations are able to collect from homes, corporate offices etc.
