33 Boston Area Organizations Accepting Non-Monetary Donations

33 organizations in the Boston, MA area that take donations of goods, electronics, and clothes and their website address. 

An important step in every decluttering project is deciding which household items to keep, toss, or donate. Not every non-profit charitable organization loves tangible donations. If it’s money, they’ll take it. If it’s household goods, clothing, furniture, or electronics, it’s not so easy. Many organizations are not equipped to take donated items. And some are very picky as to what they will take. We have curated a list of 33 organizations in the Boston area that will take donations of household items. Many of them will come to your home to pick them up. We hope you find this list helpful and that your gently used items that you no longer need find another welcoming home.
