Balancing Life, Work & Family

Helping Others,
Helping Yourself
et's face it. Nearly all of us have closets
that are crowded with clothing we no
longer wear, handbags we no longer use
and scarves that we no longer like. And then,
there's the basement!

They'd be thrilled to have the down comforter that you haven't used since upgrading
from a queen to a king-sized bed, or the
kitchen items or the lamps or the pillows
that are stored in a box in a closet somewhere.

When you make a monetary gift or contribute items to a recognized charitable
organization you can, at least for now, get
a charitable deduction against your income
tax if you itemize deductions.

And yet, somewhere in Berks County,
there's a family with five children on the
verge of getting an apartment of their own
after experiencing a period of homelessness.
And, guess what? They'd love to have that
desk that your son has been storing in your
basement since he graduated from college
five years ago.

Donating items or making financial
contributions before the end of the year
makes sense for a lot of reasons. As in most
communities, there are people in Greater
Reading who are in need of assistance and
waiting for help. Your donations can go a
long way in making life easier for someone
who needs a hand up.

Donating unused furniture and other items
helps to keep your living space organized and
comfortable, and knowing that you acted to
help others will make you feel good.

Berks County is home to various organizations that accept donations of clothing,
furniture and other items. You can learn more
about most of them by checking websites or
social media platforms.
