Tax season is in full bloom but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about next year’s filings! While the filing deadline for your 2016 taxes is Tuesday, April 18, you can take the sting out of 2017’s taxes by utilizing the Internal Revenue Service’s charitable contribution deduction. Pickup Please is ready to help!

Why donate to the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA)? There are seemingly as many answers to this question as there are people who donate. Some of our favorite reasons include:

  • Donating is a convenient and practical way to clean out your home of used or unwanted items;
  • Donating gives you a feeling of gratitude and goodness;
  • Donating helps to teach children lifelong lessons of valuing items and giving back;
  • Donating is a way to contribute to our community by assisting individuals in need – and in the case of donations to the VVA, you’re assisting America’s veterans!

As a nation we honor donations large and small, and reward the contributions through our tax system. Because donating is a valued, time-honored tradition, you receive a paycheck of the heart and wallet!

The deadline for 2016 deductions passed at the stroke of midnight last Dec. 31, so there’s no better time than now to look forward to cutting next year’s tax bill. Just take a look around your home, determine what items you no longer use and start collecting them for your next donation pickup.

When you schedule a donation pickup with Pickup Please, rest assured you are donating to a worthy and qualified organization. Through your donating efforts you will be helping to support and sustain the men and women who defended our freedoms.

Your donations go to support the services and programs of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). By donating used clothes, shoes, small appliances and other household items, you help to generate funds to take care of the service men and women who defend America.

The majority of the funding for the VVA comes from the generous support of people like you, and the VVA puts those funds to good use. The VVA’s mission is to support all veterans – past, present and future – in part through programs that improve the welfare and hospital care of all veterans, assist veterans suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, and rally our political leaders on issues impacting women and minority veterans.
