It’s time to say out with the old and give new life to new or gently-used items you may not need.

In the spirit of decluttering, and removing items that don’t bring you joy, we’ve rounded up a list of 10 San Antonio organizations that accept donated items that help locals in need + support community causes.

For the large hauls

The San Antonio Humane Society accepts car donations to help provide funding for the care of the thousands of homeless animals in the Alamo City.


Consider donating that old, beat up pickup truck to the SA Humane Society to fund its mission and find dogs like Koala a home.

If you have a stove or other small appliances collecting dust in the garage, consider donating it to Habitat for Humanity.

The San Antonio Electronics and Computer Recycling Service provides free computer, laptop, monitor, and electronic equipment recycling — and yes, this is your sign to recycle the box as well.

Letting go of clothing

Maybe the kids grew up and are not playing with their favorite toys anymore. Give it new life by donating it to the Boysville Auxiliary Thrift Store. It accepts clothing, toys, housewares, and bed linens.

Remove Dad’s 1990s corporate suite and give it to Dress for Success San Antonio, an organization for those searching for careers.

Make a high schooler’s night magical by offering Project Prom your gently-used formal attire. Its mission is to provide formal wear to high school teens at no cost.

Household items

Did you know that one in three families in the US don’t have access to an adequate supply of diapers? Donate unused diapers or feminine hygiene products to Texas Diaper Bank.

The House of Neighborly Service in San Antonio is always looking for donations like non-perishable food items, basic kitchenware + books to make care packages for seniors and families.
