Do you have items you no longer need? A number of holiday collections are underway and items can be easily donated at one location. Find out more!

Holidays 2012: Donate Clothing, Phones and Donate New Toys

Are you buying a new winter jacket? Do you have holiday lights that no longer work? Did your kids get duplicate toys this year? Did Santa bring you a new cell phone?

If you have items you’d like to toss but aren’t sure what to do with them, a number of collections are taking place in Westchase and items can be dropped off right at the Goodwill drop off point in the parking lot of Primrose Preschool at 12051 Whitmarsh Lane.

One collection seeking new items and not used ones is Toys for Tots. New, unwrapped toys are being sought for children in the area. To find a Toys for Tots Tampa location go to their website.

Cell phones piling up because you have the newest and best that technology has to offer? To find a cell phone drop off location go to Cellphonebank.org.

Is your organization collecting donations this holiday season? Let us know. Leave a note in comments or e-mail Local Editor Nicole Hutcheson at  nicole.hutcheson@patch.com
