Living in Chicago Blog – Zealous Good

Do you have something you don’t use that someone else could?  Of course.  We all do

PPM has the best residents in Lakeview, Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast.  They prove it time and time again.  Like during our food drive with Lakeview Pantry, where our residents raised over 3 tons of food for needy families in Chicago neighborhoods.  And, even after it was over we were receiving calls from residents asking how they could help.  Well this year, by partnering with Zealous Good, we’ve found a way to make helping those in need easier than ever.
Everyone has something collecting dust and in need of a good home, and that’s where Zealous Good comes in.  They connect people with excess goods to local Chicago charities in need of those goods.   And by matching specific donations to specific needs, they reduce cost and effort of getting goods to charities while giving the donation a maximum impact.  Simply put, Zealous Good can find a new home for pretty much anything you’d like to donate.  Zealous Good has worked with 40 local Chicago charities and has matched over $100,000 of donated items. Here is a partial list of items they are looking for:

appliances
clothing
cell phones
computer and electronic equipment
food
sports equipment
tools
 

If you’re cleaning your apartment or moving, Zealous Good is the perfect way to make sure your unwanted stuff goes to good use.   For more info, visit their website at www.zealousgood.com.
