During this Labor Day Weekend, some may take the time to do some cleaning, organizing, downsizing or maybe all three in their homes. They'll run across some stuff they don't need anymore or just want to get rid of to free up some space. While most will have a garage sale to earn some extra folding cash, others will just feel the need to donate those items to a charity. There are a plethora of places in East Texas to donate used items and all of them are perfect options to do so. One such organization is Goodwill which can be found in Longview, Texas and other East Texas cities. While they accept a long list of items, there are some items they will not take.
