Big Reuse is New York City's only non-profit retail outlet for salvaged and surplus building materials. Their centers house everything from high-end appliances to reclaimed lumber, kitchen cabinet sets, and salvaged flooring. We visit them in Gowanus every day to donate building materials.
Goodwill Industries is an international organization with a simple mission: putting people back to work. Their New York and New Jersey retail stores collect a wide variety of donations-from clothing and household goods to furniture and books-selling the items in their stores at affordable prices. Their retail locations employ individuals with disabilities and other barriers, helping them find work and take the next step in their careers. Of every dollar spent at their stores, 93 cents goes toward funding their programs and services, including vocational training. Goodwill is consistently ranked among the top charities that make your donation go further.

Hour Children is a non-sectarian, not-for-profit agency located in Long Island City (Queens County) that has been solely focused, throughout our 25-year history, on providing practical, comprehensive services to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their families. Founded in 1986 and incorporated in 1992, Hour Children has evolved from its modest beginnings as a program that provided care to children of women incarcerated at Bedford Hills and Taconic Correctional Facilities, to a leading provider of prison- and community-based programs that support these fragile women and their families as they work to transform their lives and achieve self-sufficiency.
