Default I have household Items to donate. Where should I go?

Hi there. My mom just moved here and I'm helping go through all of her things and downsizing. She has tons of kitchenware that she just doesn't need or have room for, along with more clothes than you can imagine. Do any of the churches in the area have a newcomer`s pantry or place I can donate all of this kind of thing?

There is a truck that comes to the parking lot of St Timothy's Church.
Last Thursday of every month from 7am to 11am.
Salvation Army will also pick up items that you want to donate.
There's also Sumterr County Freecycle and lots more.

I just took alot of stuff to Hospice Thrift Store in Summerfield @Spruce Creek Plaza across from WalMart. They use the proceeds to fund Hospice.

There is also a manned Goodwill Truck near the Walmart on 466---same side of road as Walmart----last road to right before RR tracks. We were told by the gentlemen manning the donation truck that they will be building a Goodwill Store on that site in the future.

Our family takes all things worth donating to Hospice in the Spruce Creek shopping center. They also pick up.

If you live north of The Villages, there's Centsible Furnishings. It's sponsored by LOVE, INC, an organization of about 30 local churches. The money from the sold items helps support the program which screens and helps those who are going through a rough patch and need help. It's sort of like a clearing house where they know where all the resources are and where to send those that need help or even give them the help they need. Very worthwhile organization. North of 42 by about 1.5 miles on 441, the east side (on right).

Habitat is on 44, just a short distance from the Brownwood entrance. Donation hours are 10 to 4:30 Tuesday - Saturday. I don't know the name of the street, but it is next to the people who sell the large rocks. There is a sign on 44.
