After all of your packages arrive this Christmas, don’t throw away the boxes! There’s a way you can use them to give back this holiday season.

Online retailers like Amazon, New Egg, Overstock, and others are part of a free shipping and donation program called “Give Back Box.” Here’s how you participate — just remove your received item from the box, fill it with donations, print a free mailing label, then drop it off at the post office or any UPS location.

The donations will go to your nearest Goodwill store. If you donate, you are also able to receive a tax deduction receipt. To receive the receipt, you must create an account with Give Back Box and use your tracking number to itemize your donation online. You can also itemize the the individual items you’re sending in the box. Once your donation has been accepted and processed, you will receive the receipt of the donation via email.
