What should I do with it?

My mom bought my son a bike for his birthday in June and he has already outgrown it. We bought him a new one for Christmas, so trying to figure out what to do with the other bike. I know I could just take it to Goodwill or something but I would rather just give it to a kid that might not get any other present. I looked into toys for tots and they only take new toys. The bike is in really good condition, but not new. Does anyone know an organization or have any ideas of what I can do to make sure the bike gets to a child that otherwise wouldn't get one?

The closest Salvation army is about 40 minutes away. Do they give out the items or sell them in thrift stores like goodwill?

I've seen them do both. Allowed or not idk. They also have xmas programs. I know amvets will come to your door, its for veterans and their families but idk if they resell stuff.

Try calling your local churches. They very likely know someone who would love it.
