Kendall Donation Pickup
In 1833 the Florida Land and Mortgage Company purchased much of what is the Kendall donation pickup area today. The land was named after Henry John B. Kendall, director of the company. Without the ability to sell the land because it was not open to “homesteading,” few settlers ventured in this area. Even so, a post office opened in 1914 and, soon after, the city’s first school. Some Seminole natives also continued to live in the area well into the 1940s.
Kendall was never densely populated until recently with the influx of Haitian, Cuban, and Latin American immigration spikes. In 2010, Kendall had only about 75 thousand inhabitants. Compared to its neighboring cities like Miami with 399,508 residents, Kendall was not an overcrowded area by any means. Therefore, it only recently became a donation pickup area where the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation (FBCF) can collect donations from its residents. The FBCF only collects used items, not checks or money orders, which the donors are happy to contribute because they can discard old clothes, knick-knacks, figurines, and even furniture, while simultaneously contributing to breast cancer research.
Recently, immigration from Latin America has caused a surge in population, and therefore, donation pickups in Kendall, making it a giving and thriving community, where there’s plenty to do.
There is an entire article dedicated to the “Ten Best Things to do in Kendall” published by the Miami New Times, starting with an unexpected Parisian tradition found right at the “Love Lock Bridge” in Kendall, Florida. The bridge, located just off the turnpike at the Palms at Town & Country outdoor mall, imitates the Paris Pont des Arts bridge tradition where couples stop by to add their personal “love lock” to the collection. The locks are purposely placed linked around the bridge fence to symbolize a specific couple’s never-ending love. This is one beautiful tradition among the many practices that make Kendall a special place. Another fantastic custom of the place is to donate old household items, clothes, electronics or furniture to the FBCF. Kendall residents and visitors contact Pickups for Breast Cancer to schedule their Kendall donation pickup. The drivers can pass by the location of the pickup and collect the items, without no donor present. This means donors can enjoy the wonders of Kendall, without feeling guilty about scheduling a donation pickup on the day of the outing.
More places to check out after scheduling a donation pickup in Kendall are: the “Barley” restaurant and “Ca Chocholates.” Barley is a Kendall-favorite, being a casual-chic gastropub with satisfying pork-based tapas, presenting unique plates like Korean pig ears, Serrano ham “croquetas,” and more. But the thing you have to try is their signature mac n’ cheese.
Maybe sweets are more your thing. If so, the Cao Chocolates local chocolatier carries flavors using cacao beans sourced from small farmers around the world, including chocolate truffles and bonbons made with 100% fine Venezuelan cacao. The Venezuelan influences are evident all over Miami but “Cao Chocolates” brings the best of Venezuelan chocolate from its natural Cacao reserves.
