Big Brother Big Sister...

Recycle here....

Your Old Items Can Help

If you are in the process of packing away some of your older things, consider donating a few items.  Your donations will help children in your community and provide a deduction on next year's taxes.  You can help out a great cause without opening your wallet.
Big Brother Big Sister Foundation accepts donations of clothing, shoes, books, small toys, games and household items.  They use these items to help support the work of BBBS mentoring agencies throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  They'll pick up your donations for free and drop off a tax deductible receipt.
They will be collecting used clothing donations in Lynn on Thursday, February 18, 2010.

There are three ways you can arrange a pick up:

 CALL Them
  1-800-483-5503 to setup a pickup.
Click on the email address above, send them your contact info, address and a brief description of the items you'd like to donate.  A staff member will email you back to set things up. 
 Click on the link above to register online and setup your pickup.  You'll receive automatic reminders, a printer ready receipt (all donations are tax deductible) and you'll be able to setup future pickups.


  1. I work for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay and the money our foundation raises through sales of used clothing and other goods really helps. Thanks for bringing it to people's attention. Independent research shows that a Little Brother or Little Sister (a.k.a. a “Little”) who is matched for one year or more in a consistent one-to-one friendship with a caring, responsible adult is more likely to graduate from high school, to attend college, and to show more respect to adults. Littles are also more likely to avoid alcohol, drugs and violence.

  2. cool!! :)
    I give my used clothing to them on a regular, when they drive by the whole neighborhood on a regular. It's great to hear you work for them!
