Hi, I have some baby items (and other household items) to donate, and I'd like for them to go to a good cause. Does anyone know of a women's shelter, a charity for single parents, or any other nonprofit organization that could use baby items or other household items? Thanks for any ideas!

I have donated to the Genesis Home in Durham in the past, but they do not accept clothes- they will direct you to The Durham Rescue Mission for that.

Here's a link: http://www.genesishome.org/index.php

I remember donating stuff to them when DS#1 was a baby, so they've been around for at least 10 years. Good luck!

Mom, wife, full-time student.  And tired.  DH, DS#1 (9/99) and DS#2 (9/09), and 2 dogs.

If the items are in good condition I know that the YWCA of Raleigh has a teen program that is always in need of stuff.
