I have always taken stuff like that to YMCA, Salvation Army, and Goodwill. I’m not sure about Goodwill, but both YMCA and Salvation Army accept furniture in my area

I work at a women’s shelter (in Canada though) and we can’t accept donations of large items like furniture because there’s not enough space. However, when someone calls wanting to donate it we will post the information and let all of our clients know, so that if they have somewhere to store it they can still get it. Maybe you could do something like that?

I usually do Goodwill for this because it’s usually quick and convenient.  I also shop there sometimes myself, so I like the stores.  I think you usually have to drop things off to them.

I have occasionally done Easter Seals, who usually have trucks that will come and pick up things so you don’t have to bring them.

St Vincent de Paul is also one that will take these types of donations, and sometimes even pick up from you.

When we moved and had a ton of stuff to donate, we set up a pick up time through the American Kidney Fund.  We left it out in front of the garage, and they picked up everything and loaded it themselves.  I know the Potter’s House also does this.  We’ve also taken loads to Goodwill ourselves, too.
