The Re.Use.Full website directly connects donors with organizations looking for specific items.

Kansas City organization takes the guess work out of where to donate your gently used items.

A Kansas City organization has a simple solution to ensuring your donations don't go to waste.

Re.Use.Full lets "donors connect directly with the nonprofits they want to support," Leslie Scott, the organization's founder said.

The donation matchmaking program allows you to narrow down what type of community organization you give to. Domestic violence, faith-based, senior living and pets are a few of the many options on the Re.Use.Full's website.

You check off what donated items in good condition you are looking to give away, if you need the organization to pick those up or if you can deliver them and then the program returns a list of places that need the items.

The site provides the addresses and contact information for you to take your items or get it touch with the non-profit for pickup.

I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
