    I have some women’s clothes in excellent condition that I want to donate. How do I do that?

    I am downsizing and have many kitchen items (some are basically new and still in their boxes) that I would like to donate to a cause where women have left their homes in order to find sanctuary and start over. Where can I donate such items in the greater Ontario County?

    I have about 40 small Ipsy bags that I was thinking of filling with toiletries and donating to a women's shelter. Would you be interested? If you would, could you give me some advice on what kinds of toiletries would be most useful? Thank you!
