You have to be careful because if you get anything in return for a donation you can lose your tax wright off. We gave our old clunker to PBS and got to take the average bluebook price off of our taxes.

I wouldn't count on that because these free couple of nights entail listening to presentations and then trying to sell you something. I would just donate it to habitat for humanity, Salvation Army, or somewhere reputable.
