    Hi! I have a huge box of gently used and new clothing for women that I would like to donate. I also have some gently used kitchenware. I am scaling down and really need to find someone to take it. I don't drive, so it's difficult to drop it off for donation. I would really hate to leave it on the curbside. Would feel better if it went to good use where it is needed. Thank You!
