I think it's fine but I might call around first and see what's permitted and the best location for the drop off.

If you wanted to donate it in Orlando you could just go to any church downtown, but just putting it on a street corner, I'd call dumping.

At a mission, homeless shelter, church? Donating. Placing it on the sidewalk? Dumping.

If you aren't going to donate to a local goodwill, community aid, etc and wish to give directly to the homeless; you should hand out to the homeless not just leave it lay in a pile someplace.

But answer me this.

Are you willing to go back and check on the box to ensure it has been emptied after a short time has passed?

Donating. It would be a lot easier to put it in the garbage or nearest dumpster.

The argument was that 1) it takes too long, and 2) those organizations take too much of a cut.

It's an act of mercy. Besides, it's the right thing to do.
