SARASOTA, Fla. — Is a breakup bringing you heartache for Valentine’s Day?

Goodwill stores in the Sarasota and Las Vegas areas have an anti-Valentine’s Day antidote. They’re asking people to donate their ex’s stuff with a “don’t hate, donate” campaign.

In a news release, Goodwill Manasota Foundation Vice President Veronica Brandon Miller says the agency is “having a little fun at the expense of Valentine’s Day.” But she notes that breakups are never easy and that it is important to “get rid of the items that keep exes stuck in the past.”

She says Valentine’s Day is a good time to start fresh.

So, start cleaning those closets.
