Not for Profit Organizations
'Keep', 'Pitch', and 'Donate - we've all been through the process over and over again with our clients. But WHERE to donate? This month's topic focuses on "Not for Profit Organizations". Leslie Tucker of The Children's Home Society (home pickups), Carole Splater of Charity Sharity (fabric donations) and Jayne Foley of the Assistance League's Fantastic Finds (resale shop) will be our featured panel experts.
