ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Many of you may need to make a little extra room for those new Christmas gifts.     

That's good news for some charities. A lot of folks are donating unwanted belongings to area stores like the Habitat for Humanity thrift shop. They recently got a donation from Sam's club, And they appreciate all the individual donors helping out during the season of giving.    

"Generally around this time, we are getting a lot of donations, people are getting rid of the old and getting a lot of new things in, so they bring down lots of great donations," said Charles Lewis, store manager.     

If you donate to any charity before the end of the year, you can deduct your gifts on your 2013 tax returns. To donate to the Habitat for Humanity thrift shop, you can do so by calling 229-446-8199.
