All you need to do is encourage your friends and family to clean out their closets, basements, or garages to help you raise funds and meet your goal!

Here’s how to raise those pounds:

  1. Declutter your closets, garages, cabinets, basements, and storage units to donate items!

2. Host a donation drive at your home, in your neighborhood, at your church or business!

3. Promote on social media that you’re collecting items and stop by your friends’ homes to take those items off their hands.

4. Ask your business, church, gym, etc. to let you put a donation box in the lobby for people to donate.

Meredith Smith from America’s Thrift will contact you after filling out this form.
