January has a way of inspiring us to say “good ridance” to everything from last year’s planner to that extra 5 pounds you’ve been carrying around. It’s also a time to declutter your home – and your life. The tricky part is figuring out how to find a new home for the things you just don’t need anymore.

Kevin Miles is the Executive Director of The Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Dakota and Sarah Nemmers is their Director of Programming.

They’re here to give us some insight into their organization’s needs, so that we can all declutter for a good cause.

  • Pots and pans
  • Dinnerware: Plates and bowls
