On Earth Day, Friday, April 22 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., GreenDrop LLC, the organization transforming the way consumers support national charities through the donation of gently used, unwanted goods and clothing, will celebrate Earth Day by offering three lucky donors Wawa gift cards after making a donation to their center on Richmond Highway.
To underscore the company’s commitment to the community and the environment, GreenDrop invites residents in and around Alexandria to stop by the GreenDrop center at 7210 Richmond Hwy. on April 22 to receive a special thank you for their part in keeping over 100 tons of textiles out of US landfills each week.
Providing consumers with a safe and easy alternative to dealing with suspicious donation bins, GreenDrop’s model allows donors to pull into the location on Richmond Hwy., where they are greeted by a friendly attendant who unloads their donation and offers a tax-deductible receipt. From there, collected donations are either sold to thrift stores to benefit GreenDrop’s partner charities: the Military Order of the Purple Heart or National Federation of the Blind, or given a second life through recycling and repurposing.
