As 2004 comes to an end, many people are cleaning out their closets and making donations to local charities like Goodwill Industries.
The Goodwill on Sallie Mood Drive in Savannah has seen a 40 percent increase in donations this month. Many people are getting receipts so they can write off donations at tax time.
The most popular donated items are clothes, exercise equipment and TVs.
"I'm donating some clothes and books that we have at home," said donor Louise Quirk. "I believe in recycling and if we don't want, or our children can't use the things, then hopefully someone can."
Goodwill has also seen an increase in car, boat and motorcycle donations. That's because starting January 1, the tax law changes. Instead of getting the blue book value, you will get credit for the amount received when the vehicle is sold.
