Charitable members of tRCMB - any advice on where to donate my used goods? I've got the standard clothes and non-perishable foodstuffs...but are housewares and kitchenware needed at certain places? I'm moving from CA to MI in a month and most of my stuff is not coming with me. A lot of people just drop off all their shit at the Salvation Army and let them deal with it, but I'm curious to know how efficient their process is and if there's a better way to get stuff to people that need it. Thanks!
You might try American Council for the Blind. They've picked up all kinds of stuff from me in the past.

PM me your address and a good time when you'll be out of the house. Leave the door open and I'll see to it that it's taken care of.
I don't support Salvation Army any more since I find out their organization has a beef with gay people. To be fair, I would have to do some research on whether or not they made the appropriate changes since then. I'd be willing to support them if I they acknowledged how disrespectful their values were to a large percentage of Americans and apologized.

Yea, I found that a little troubling too. I imagine it's only financial donations that could really help their cause in that area.
Any organization that has a thrift shop will take your donations. If you have something to big too move yourself like furniture and appliances they will pick it up.

The Salvation Army in Wayne, MI.
Purple Heart will send a truck to your house if you call.
Most communities have some sort of food pantry for the poor. Check with your local city hall or call around local churches, temples, etc.
The St. Vincent de Paul organization helps people with goods like you are speaking of. Contact a local church for a contact in your area.

I've got an old MSU canopy I'd like to donate to the cause. I found it a couple of years ago at the CMU game so it has no sentimental value to me.

whatever you do, do not donate MSU clothes outside of the MSU community. you don't want a bunch of criminals or bums wearing MSU - you want MSU students in need to be wearing them.
Good point. I recommend donating any KKK or neo-Nazi t-shirts to thrift stores in Ann Arbor.
Does it have a tab missing?
Yes and the bag!
