NASHVILLE, TN - Tomorrow is the last day for you to get a tax deduction when donating to Goodwill.
   
Everything donated before January first will count on your 2013 return.
   
But you won't be the only one handing over your "has-beens".

The Bellevue location is among Goodwill's top five donation sites out of 78 here in the midstate.
   
And starting today, their donations quadruple through to the first of the year.

A constant flow of donations are dropped off at this site just off of Old Hickory Boulevard.

Betsy Alexander regularly donates to this Goodwill drop-off site and isn't surprised to see such a crowd of cars so close to the end of the year.

It's a big difference for Deron Lorio who is here for the second time this year.

Donors bring in anything from clothing to electronics and shoes.

Blankets and linens are dropped off in piles.

It's all sorted on the spot  by these workers.

Clarence Scott has worked for Goodwill nearly five years.

He's seen donations increase from year to year and Goodwill is always prepared for this week as donors rush for a tax receipt.

Metal crates only last minutes before they're full and ready to load into semi truck trailers for shipping to the warehouse.

And these workers are grateful for the donors who fill them.

Goodwill recommends for you to make a list of the things you're dropping off before you get there.
   
You can staple that to your tax receipt to save time at the site.
