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.

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

Donating.

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?

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

It's lazy donating. Should really put it in the proper donation receptacle so it's not thrown away, or exposed unnecessarily to the elements, before being taken/used..

Don't just dump it. Why not give it Good Will, Salvation Army or St. Vincent Society they will see that it gets to people in need.

How much is a cut of a blanket or shoes? They take the laces out of the shoes. Being in the non profit arena, please give it directly to someone who needs it or a shelter

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.

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

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