Just got a note from Andrea over at ReStore, Home Improvement Centers in Springfield, MA. She's trying to get the word out.
The ReStore Home Improvement Center, a local non-profit, is seeking donations of good quality kitchen cabinet sets. We work with over local 400 contractors, retailers and manufacturers to accept donations of overstock, misordered or slightly damaged cabinets from retailers and manufacturers (we can even accept display cabinets!), kitchen cabinet sets from remodeling projects through contractors (your client can get a tax deduction for donating, and we’ll pick them up for free), and we even offer deconstruction to remove cabinet sets. Some of the benefits of donating to ReStore include:
- Lower disposal costs
- Environmentally friendly, our organization helps keep useful building materials from the landfill
- You’ll work with a non-profit with a solid reputation for helping local homeowners improve their homes and communities
- Free pick-up service for donated items
- All donated items are tax deductible, we will provide a receipt on the day of pick-up
Another terrific Boston source is the Building Materials Resource Center. I have donated my old bathroom lighting there before. The folks there are great!
Many communities have similar organizations -- great places to donate and find (gently used items). How Green?!
