Spring Cleaning? Don’t Despair, Donate!

Spring is in the air! Those of us at PFP know that Spring is on the way when the weather starts to warm, buds sprout on the trees and our real estate transaction calendar grows. That also means many of our clients who are selling their homes begin to look for places to donate excess clothing or furniture. Whether you’re selling your home or engaged in good old-fashioned Spring cleaning and you’re not sure what to do with your unwanted but perfectly usable goods, we have some suggestions.
