WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The clock is ticking to make last-minute end-of-year donations to claim on taxes.
According to Goodwill Industries of Eastern North Carolina, the week between Christmas and New Year's is historically the biggest donation time for the organization.
Goodwill accepts clothing, household items and toys at 36 locations throughout Eastern North Carolina.
The organization said revenue from the donation centers helps fund its jobs and job training, its free computer and life skills training available online, and its GCF Farm where fresh produce is grown and donated to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
Donors interested in claiming tax deductions should keep itemized lists of their donations. The IRS allows a deduction for each item, but the donor determines each item's value. GCF Donation Centers and Stores ® provide receipts to each donor.
