I have some items that might work for a family shelter, or women and kids shelter. Top of bed items (comforters, sheets, blankets) Can anyone point me in the right direction to donate? Since they are queen size and not twin I know a lot of places can't use them.

We always donate our items to the Battered Women's shelter... They take everything and are very appreciative... Many of the women and children they help have left in the middle of the day or night with nothing more than the clothes on their back... They set up their donations like a store, so the moms and kids can go thru and "shop" for their items to help set up their new home...

Perhaps the Salvation Army? Not the store, obviously, but the shelter itself. They have a family shelter setting which includes married couples with children. I am not sure what their bed situation is like, but they might have bigger than twin beds. My first thought was Guadalupe Home, but I know they only have twin beds.

I need a list of one or more Battered Women's Shelters or Family Shelters or Kids Shelters, you get the drift, that includes a rating or pie chart or BBB grade of how much of the donations goes toward those they are supposed to help verses how much goes to Administrative costs or, better yet, CEO graff, oops, I mean pay and incentives.

Anyone know who, what or where I would Google to get that info?

Thanks!

In regards to the OP, we recently donated items to the battered women's shelter, which is now known as Family Violence Prevention Services. They accept donations at 2617 N. Main, and the phone number is (210) 733-3536.

The location is not marked, but is a small shop on the west side of the street just south of W. Mistletoe. They accept toiletries, household items, clothing, etc. It's laid out like a thrift shop, but vouchers are used for the women to get the items they need to start a new household.
