If you’re donating old clothing and household items, there are a few things you can do to help your local Goodwill or other donation site. Use rubber bands to help keep shoes together, and be sure to separate clothing from household items (using large trash bags is fine). Battery-operated items and those with electrical cords should be tested to make sure they work; if they don’t, toss them into the trash or take them to recycling facilities that accept such items. Any fragile items should be wrapped in newspaper and placed in boxes to prevent them from breaking.
