Spring Cleaning: The Perfect Time to Donate


Spring is a great time to clean up your home and donate anything you don’t need.

A lot of us use spring as a time to purge our homes of things we don’t need through donations. Maybe you have some clothes that no longer fit, cans of food you aren’t really planning on using, basics like paper towels that you bought too much of. While searching your home for goods you no longer need, it’s time to start considering donating. Donating not only helps those in need, but it’ll make you feel good as well. Here is some more info about where you can donate this spring!

Donations At My Brother’s Keeper

At My Brother’s Keeper, we’re happy to take donations. Getting regular donations is one way we can provide resources to the homeless and continue to build and improve our community. If you’ve got an overstocked kitchen with resources you no longer need, we would be happy to take them. There are many people out there in need of good will and kind donations, so please consider donating to those who would be grateful. If you have questions, please contact Danise Jones-Dorsey at 410-644-3194 or you can reach her by email at

You can also contribute by hosting a food drive. There are many items that are in need currently. Check out our full In Kind Donations Wish List here, but some of the items needed include:

  • Cereal
  • Spaghetti
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned goods (green beans, tomatoes, milk, tuna, chicken, fruit)
  • Juice
  • Rice
  • Boxes of mashed potatoes
  • Condiments (ketchup, mayo, hot sauce)

Donation Pickup Services in Baltimore

If you’ve managed to gather a pile of clothes you no longer need during your spring cleaning efforts, it’s time to consider donating them. Luckily, DonationTown is a service that’s here to help: simply find a nearby charity that will pick your donations up for you. If you don’t have the time or ability to lug your donation items to a thrift store or community donation box, a free pick up may be the route to go. If you do want to take the items yourself, look out for the large yellow donation bins throughout Baltimore! They’re a great way to rid yourself of some old clothes while also helping those in need.
