Now that Labor Day has passed, it's time to start cleaning your Springs Corpus Christi apartment home in preparation for fall and the holiday season. Save the environment by donating your used items to one of the following resale shops or charitable organizations.

Goodwill Industries
2961 S. Port Avenue

Goodwill Industries in South Texas generates $20 million in annual revenue that is used to provide opportunities for individuals who are disabled or have other barriers to employment. Items including clothing and accessories, books, small appliances and other household goods are accepted. Large furniture and appliances are also accepted, but they should be dropped off directly to one of their stores rather than at a donation station.

Habitat for Humanity® ReStore
1901 Lipan

HFH ReStore is a bargain home center stocked with donations from retail stores, contractors, and individuals. Your gently used household items are sold along with the other donations to raise funds for HFH and its mission of providing affordable housing for individuals and families in need.

Paralyzed Veterans of America
4801 Ayers St.

Family Thrift Store coordinates donations on behalf of the Texas chapter of PVA. Take your gently used clothing, linens and small household items to the drop box at the Corpus Christi location. They will accept non-upholstered items that are small enough for one person to carry.

The Funky Frog
5765 S. Staples

Kids grow out of their clothes so quickly that they hardly have time to wear them out. Contact The Funky Frog about selling your used clothing, toys, car seats, strollers, high chairs, and other kid-related items. Clothing in sizes from babies up to five-years-old is accepted by appointment only. Other items may be dropped off any time during store hours.

Clothes Mentor
5118 S. Staples

Consignment shops generally do not pay out until your items sell, which can take weeks or even months. Clothes Mentor pays cash on the spot for popular brands including Gap, Nike, Eddie Bauer, J. Crew, Lane Bryant and Old Navy. Items accepted range from blazers, boots and jeans to maternity and plus-size apparel. 

Don't forget that any items you donate are tax-deductible. Just be sure to itemize them and get a receipt.
