Shyp Ties With Goodwill To Pick Up Your Donations In LA

Shyp, an on-demand, shipping and delivery service which serves Los Angeles, said today that it has inked a partnership with charity Goodwill, where it will pick up items for the charity--for free--from Los Angeles users. Shyp--which is based in San Francisco--said it will pick up items from Los Angeles customers for the next month, as part of an expanded effort with the charity group. An earlier effort with Goodwill in April results in the donation of 21.5 tons of items to the group. The deal also applies to Shyp's customers in San Francisco, New York City, and Miami. Shyp opened up on demand pickup service in April in beta, letting users snap a photo of any item they'd like to ship, requesting a pickup, and charging a small fee on top of the cost of the shipment.
