Hello and thank you for helping us help others!
The House of Good Deeds gladly accepts new and like-new clothing, shoes, housewares, electronics, toiletries, and cleaning supplies, as well as food (frozen, fresh, and shelf-stable).
Unfortunately, affordable storage is non-existent these days so we can’t take anything bulky or breakable, which means books and unmatched plates/glasses are out. Our volunteers pick up sorted bagged and labeled donations directly from homes and offices at least once every week from every part of NYC, and we’ll need your address and time frame if you want to coordinate a pickup.
For larger items like furniture and full-size appliances, we have a Facebook group where donors can post clear photos and descriptions (including brands, sizes, etc). Some of the best posts also get featured on our Instagram and regular Facebook pages (@theHouseOfGoodDeeds). Once you find a recipient, usually within a day or two, you can coordinate the pickup of those larger items directly with them at a time convenient for all parties.
Our charity is donation-driven and we give away nearly everything we get, so if you can afford to do so, please contribute financially towards our expenses to our driver or online through our website at HouseOfGoodDeeds.org, @Altruists on Venmo, @HouseOfGoodDeeds on PayPal, Patreon.com/HoGD, or via our Facebook Annual Year-End Fundraiser (https://www.facebook.com/donate/628023378964863) – plus check if your job provides financial support for local charities? We can provide a tax deductible receipt for all your support, if you would like one.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Hope your holiday season is going well so far!
