This is a great way to recycle those summer clothes that don’t fit anymore, especially the clothes your children have outgrown
All you have to do is call the Vietnam Veterans of America, or log onto their website, and they’ll come by your house and pick up your discarded clothes and household goods.
- Call VVA at 1-800459-8387 or schedule a pickup online at www.vvapickup.org to have a truck stop at your home.
- If your zip code is not listed on the website, contact VVA at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800459-8387 for more information.
- If VVA doesn’t do clothes pick-ups in your neighborhood, they tell you who will take you clothing discards.
- Put items on your porch by 8:00 A.M. on the scheduled day (rain or shine).
- Clearly mark your bags or boxes “For VVA”
- You don’t have to be home. The driver will leave a tax deductible receipt.
The date of the pickup depends on where you live.

What VVA does with your donations

Those funds provide over half of VVA’s annual needs to support local, state and national service programs (e.g. homeless veterans, Agent Orange related health programs, improved hospital care for veterans with disabilities),
The more people who contact the Vietnam Veterans of America about donations, the more VVA can do to help veterans nationwide.
