Our Program

While other major charity organizations require you to schedule your donation pickup weeks in advance, and some of them have stopped offering pickup services all together, Pickup Please can pick up your donation within 24 hours in many areas.

Your generous donations and charitable contributions of clothing, household goods, books, shoes, small appliances, electronics, and more make a big difference in the lives of America’s Veterans and their families.

The Vietnam Veterans of America sells your donated items to private companies by annual bid which generates the majority of the funding to support the local, state, and national programs of the Vietnam Veterans of America. Your donations make it all possible so we thank you for your support.

Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.

— Vietnam Veterans of America motto

In January 1978, a group of fifteen Vietnam veteran advocates got together in Washington, D.C., and began the organization that became Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). VVA today is the only congressionally chartered national Vietnam veterans service organization. Over the years, VVA has been the primary organization insisting that the U.S. Government hold up its obligation to all veterans.

The VVA is a respected charity that gives aid to all of America’s veterans, not just those of a particular age group or war.

By donating used clothes, shoes, appliances, and other household items, you help generate funds to take care of the soldiers and service men and women who help keep America safe from harm.

The VVA is a critical support service for our veterans. VVA became a membership organization in 1979 and set to work on the issues it remains committed to today:

  • Improving ...

    the general welfare and hospital care of all veterans, especially homeless and disabled veterans

  • Assisting ...

    veterans suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and other disabilities

  • Working ...

    closely with veterans of other conflicts

  • Leading ...

    the topics on women and minority veterans’ issues
