    Call 1-800-718-7825 and have a donation truck of The Salvation Army pick it up. I know that telephone number because I work as a Salvation Army donation shed attendant. Yes, I’m commenting AND advertising at the same time.

    Put it on Craig’s List and advertise it as “low mileage”.

    I worked at a local food pantry sorting donations. It amazed me the amount of long since expired cans, jars, and packaged food people would donate instead of throwing away. If you don’t want to eat the 4 year old stale box of crackers that’s been rotting in your basement pantry, you honestly think someone forced by circumstances beyond their control to shop at a food pantry is going to be grateful to get them? I gave up that line of charity work when I realized how incredibly inefficient it was: people buy the food that was trucked to the grocery store, put it in a bag or barrel to have it trucked to a central processing warehouse to be sorted like so much trash by unpaid volunteers, then it’s trucked to food pantries, where if it goes unsold, it is discarded.
