Vietnam Veterans of America serves the needs of veterans of the Vietnam War era. One source of funding is through soliciting and reselling donated household items. VVA does not own retail outlets; instead, they sell the donations through a bidding process to qualified retailers. VVA accepts donations of clothing, small furniture, and household items, as well as medical equipment such as wheelchairs. They use an eco-friendly approach, and according to Deb Menich, the NYC Clothing and Household Goods Director, “everything is recycled down to the fiber and will never wind up in a landfill.” VVA has drop-off locations but will also pick up.
