From Junk to Joy

Raleigh Rescue Mission Store and Donation Center
Raleigh Rescue Mission Store and Donation Center

You know the deal: you’ve gone through all your clothes, kids’ toys and furniture and you’re left with bags and bags of stuff you no longer want. You could just throw it all away but the better option, of course, is to donate it. Despite the recent closing of the Goodwill on Hargett Street, there are still plenty of other local donation centers that would be happy to take your unwanted stuff.
