As a charity, we depend on donations to keep our inventories full. All of the clothing that we provide to our clients started out as a donation. We love it when you bring in your gently used clothing, and you can feel good about it too, knowing that it will be used to help a person in need, free of charge. You can always bring your donation to the Allen Service Center, or, if that’s not convenient, try one of our many donation bins in the greater DFW area.
We can always use a good pair of helping hands around here—trust us when we say that there’s always more work that needs to be done. We can always use help sorting clothing or, depending on the day, sorting cans or helping clean up around the Service Center. People of all ages are welcome to volunteer, though children must be accompanied by an adult volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up on our website.
Use Amazon Smile
This is perhaps the easiest way you can help Trusted World, as it takes about two minutes and can be done from the comfort of your own home. Amazon Smile is a program run by the popular Internet retailer Amazon, where the company will donate 0.5% of the value of every purchase to a charity of your choice. This is totally free for you and will just cost a few minutes of your time to set up. The best part is that you don’t even have to change any of your habits—just keep shopping on Amazon as you did before.
Tell People about Trusted World
Here at Trusted World, we want to help as many people as possible. We’re a small organization with big dreams. You can help us achieve those dreams by telling your friends, neighbors, and colleagues about Trusted World and what we do. It may not sound like much, but every new person who hears about Trusted World is a potential client we could help or someone who could provide resources to help us help people. Remember to direct people to our website to help them get in contact with us.
Host a Donation Bin
Trusted World has an excellent relationship with local boy scout troops, who make our donation bins for us. Because of their hard work we have a steady supply of donation bins. We are always in need of new places to put these bins so that we can take in more donations across the Metroplex. If you work at a business, organization, or church that would be interested in hosting one of these bins, please contact us. We have both indoor and outdoor models, so if your organization has no space inside but a place outside we could use, let us know. This is one of the best ways of helping us help people, and, it costs you nothing—we will deliver the bin and empty it when it gets full.
Buy a Mattress
Okay, we’re cheating a little with this one. We know we said these ideas wouldn’t cost you anything, but if you’re already in the market for a mattress, there’s a way you can get a good deal and make a little money for Trusted World. Rodenbaugh’s Flooring America will donate 10% of any mattress purchase over $599 to Trusted World—you just have to drop our name when you purchase the mattress. Rodenbaugh’s offers free delivery on any mattress $599 or higher, a 60-day Mattress Satisfaction Guarantee, a 10-year warranty, and if you buy a mattress worth $2,500 or more, you will receive a $300 bonus in store credit. This is a great opportunity to upgrade or replace an old mattress and help Trusted World in the process.
