  • Salvation Army always takes donations. Though if you're not comfortable with that you might want to check the area homeless shelter to see if they have anyone in need of the items. You'd be surprised how many homeless shelters are sheltering families that hit on tough economic issues.

  • Where are you located? If you are in Chicago, I recommend The Ark Thrift Shop :  http://www.arkchicago.org/content/donate#Thrift Shops

  • Goodwill is where I take my stuff although sometimes I get flyers on my door from this or that church looking for stuff. There was a coat drive in the winter, for example.

  • The Salvation Army is an Evangelical Christian group that openly discriminates against gays.
    In 2001, their request to be exempt from anti-discrimination laws and still receive federal funding was rejected by the Bush administration.

    For a national organization I would recommend Goodwill. Otherwise, I usually look for local groups that support good causes.
