Spring Cleaning: Where to Donate Your Stuff in Cedar Rapids

As soon as the warm weather hit, I get bit by the spring cleaning bug. Things I’ve held on to all year suddenly find their way to the trash can. In filling all the bags this year, I figured there was probably a better place to put all these items other than the garbage can. If you’re like me and not sure where to take all your stuff from de-junking your house…here’s a list of where to donate in Cedar Rapids!
