What's your favorite charity to donate your unneeded goods to?

I take mine to our local Humane Society thrift shop. They spayed our dog we rescued for us. And on top of that provided the much needed large breed puppy food for her. So I promised to donate whenever I could.

What's your favorite place to give and support.

Oh, and I also like to take my baby goods to a safehaven place locally. For mothers who made the choice to keep baby alive, but struggle to provide for them.

  • I put clothing in the donation boxes found in store parking lots. I give other stuff to my mothers animal shelter, for they have a huge garage sale every Fall and Spring.

  • We donate to our kids school. They have a Coat drive, and a Food Drive, and an angel tree. We do all three. We also have huge amounts of people we know helping them out with their one and only "fundraiser" where they sell all natural cookie dough. Bonus for us....ALL of the money goes to the school.

  • I spread it around to places that my mom usually doesn't frequent like Goodwill and the Epilepsy Association thrift shop (my youngest has epilepsy, so its close to the heart.) Mom usually goes to ARC and I don't want her buying back stuff we've given away - it has happened.

  • I used to give it to the Federation for the Blind but they closed up the closest place to me. So usually Salvation Army or Good Will. Sometimes the Veteran's
