PIEDMONT TRIAD, N.C. -- 'Tis the season to give back and it doesn't hurt to have a little reward for yourself too!
Goodwill accepts donations year-round and many in the Triad are getting their donations to their nearest stores before the end of the year.
Items such as clothing, furniture, household items, and book are most commonly donated.
Stores use revenue from donations for job training programs, employment placement services, and other community-based programs for people with disabilities and those who face employment challenges.
These items can also be written off on your taxes, if they are dropped off before the December 31st deadline.
General guidelines for taking tax deductions for donations can be found in IRS publications 526 and 261.
