DENVER - On Monday and Tuesday, cars will line up at Goodwill donation locations for what is expected to be the busiest donation days of the year for the local nonprofit.
Goodwill Industries of Denver's year-end donation program - called Procrastinator's Delight - is designed to give procrastinators one last chance to get year-end tax credits for donated items. The program typically yields a tremendous outpouring of support from the local community.
As Goodwill donors know, end-of-year giving means more than just a tax deduction. Revenues earned from donated items - along with cash contributions - support Goodwill's education and career development programs for more than 19,000 at-risk youth, struggling adults and individuals with disabilities.
Goodwill accepts clothing, household items, toys, computers and vehicles - even those holiday gifts gone wrong! To find the Goodwill donation drop-off location nearest you, visit http://bit.ly/1cPJScS, or call 303-650-7700.
Goodwill provides receipts to donors at its drop-off sites, and attendants can validate itemized lists when they are presented. For general guidelines, visit http://www.goodwilldenver.org and http://www.irs.gov.
The tax deadline for 2013 donations is Dec. 31.
