As the weather warms up, many of us will be looking to do some cleaning and organizing around the house. In that cleaning, we'll run across some stuff that we don't need anymore or just want to get rid of to free up some space. While most will have a garage sale to earn some extra folding cash, others will just feel the need to donate those items to a charity. There are a plethora of places in East Texas to donate used items and all of them are perfect options to do so. One such organization is the Salvation Army in Tyler or Longview, Texas. While they accept a long list of items, there are some items they will not take.
