Looking for the best places to donate in Detroit? Look no further!
We love Detroit. The reason why? How much volunteerism there is here. Neighbors helping neighbors is part of the fabric of life in our lively city. That’s seen in our more than 9000 non-profit organizations. Many of these organizations also accept donated items. They then sell or use these items to raise money, fund their org, feed the homeless, care for the abused and so much more. In this article, we’re going to highlight some of the best places to donate in Detroit. They’re all worthy of your support. If you have items you don’t need, consider donating to one of these organizations.
On the other hand, if you have things you still want to keep but you’re running out of space for them at home, iStorage can help.
