Do you have some extra scrapbooking supplies that you do not think you will use or need? If so, you do not have to leave them gathering dust in your hobby room. Instead, you can donate all of the extra scrapbooking supplies to a charitable organization. Both national and local charitable organizations accept scrapbooking supplies as donations. While places such as hospitals will only accept new items, there are some organizations that do accept used scrapbook supplies.
- Gather together all of the scrapbooking supplies that you want to donate.
- Separate the new items from the used items because some organizations may only accept the new items.
- Pick a charitable organization for your donation.
- Donate the scrapbook supplies to the charity that you chose.
It can simply be the closet place to you or with the easiest donation process. Or you can choose an organization that you identify with the most. Any organization that you choose will benefit from the donation.
Simple Scrapbooks Mag lists the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Child Abuse Prevention Association and Operation Scrapbook as organizations in need of scrapbooking supplies.
You can also look for churches, hospitals, community centers and other organizations in your local area that may need scrapbooking supplies.
For some of the organizations, you may have to mail the supplies to the donation center. If so, be sure to pack the items in a sturdy box to prevent damage.
If you are not sure how to get the scrapbook supplies to the donation center, just contact the organization first to find out.
