Deadline approaching for tax deductible donations

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

If you have some items you’ve been wanting to get rid of, now is the chance to clear up some clutter and help people in Region 8 at the same time.

You can also get a tax deduction for donating items to a non-profit organization.

Right now, Abilities Unlimited and other organizations are accepting items for donation and can give customers a tax receipt until December 31.

Abilities Unlimited also offers a free pickup service for large items such as furniture or appliances to be picked up in Jonesboro.

Only one receipt can be given per donation.

“We’re a local company," said Heather Holmes, director of marketing for Abilities Unlimited. "We employ local people and we help local people."

“If you can bundle up old toys or maybe you got new furniture, electronics or appliances, I encourage you to share the love this season because there are a lot of things you may think maybe that won’t sell but they really will.”

Electronics that are not in working condition can also be donated.

“We have an e-cycling program here,” Holmes said. “We can actually take those parts and refurbish those and sell them as well. If you’re in question, bring it in and we can decide if it’s something we can refurbish, recycle or sell in the store.”

If you’re interested in donating, you can drop your items off at the Abilities Unlimited Donation Center located at 410 W.Huntington Ave in Downtown Jonesboro.
