While moving can be stressful, it can also provide a great opportunity to clean out closets and pantries, giving you the benefit of starting off more organized and clutter free in your new home. We have reached out to several organizations in McMinnville that accept various types of donations and have created a list to get you started if you are looking to donate items as you prepare to move. We know moving can be busy and sometimes even if you have a desire to donate, adding one more thing to your list can feel like too much. Our crew is happy to bring donation items back to the office and we will get them to the proper donation point for you. We can send one of our signature blue bins with your moving crew and you can fill it with pantry items or other gently used household items to donate to one of the organizations below. Just let us know at your 24 hour pre-move check in if you will need us to send a blue bin for donation items!
