One way to conserve the earth and our community's resources is to donate your used items to a local charity!

Goodwill, Salvation Army, Caritas, Habitat for Humanity's ReStore, Mission Waco, Family Abuse Center and several others can all take your gently used items and turn them into support for their worthy programs. Check your phone book under 'Charitable Organizations' or 'Thrift Shops'.
