Default Where to donate a huge box of beanie babies/action figures for under-privileged kids in Santa Clara County?

Trying to clear out some old stuff. I was a 90's kid and collected these things back then. Everything looks to be in excellent condition. Anyone have a name of a non-profit charity that gives these toys directly to under-privileged kids? Where it for sure goes to the children. Also, a charitable tax write-off would be appreciated but unnecessary.

Default Sacred Heart community service

I would suggest taking them to Sacred Heart Community Service at 1381 South. First St., San Jose
Their donation center is in back of the center and is open M-Th (8-5) ,Fridays 8-4, and on Saturday mornings 9-noon.
I've donated several times there and they serve a great number of low income families.
No need to call first, they have volunteers at the tables in the back who will accept your donations.

I tried to donate my kids used stuffed toys (in totally new condition) quite a few years ago, and the charities I called only accepted new stuffed toys. So check to make sure that they accept them, otherwise they may all end in the trash......
