    I appreciated this article in the news.nn I always have things I would like to get rid of, but not sure what to do w/ them. I used to give to the Goodwill, until a friend of mine who worked there told me the staff steals everything they want first, then whatever is left, they put on the floor to sale. Needless to say, I stopped giving to them a LONG time ago.nnI would like to help families who have lost their household items, clothes, furniture, or whatever it might be. And I can be sure it goes to help people that are really in need of it. It helps them & their children, & it also helps me by getting rid of my unused things.
