Hello everyone,

I have just returned from a long 2 1/2 month road trip through Western China. I am trying to sell a lot of the gear in the classifieds ([...]

Whatever I can't sell by the time I'm ready to go I want to donate. I also have a bunch of food and some other things that aren't worth selling.

Is there a place to donate food or other goods for disaster relief?

I recently took and donated a bunch of used clothes and shoes to the little store right next to Paul's Shop. I think it's called Rainbow. I guess you could go and talk to the owner and see what he says. Good luck!

There was a similar thread before, but it seems gone. i'll just repost here.

If it's clothes or objects, you can put them in bags and leave them in small villages in the city (places where migrant workers usually live). Putting them in different bags at different places would guarantee that it's not only one or two people who would get the lot. Won't take much of your time, max 1 hour.

For food, if it's sealed or canned, you can just go downstairs and give them to security guards or cleaning ladies that you often see in your community. They don't always get the luxury to eat anything else than what the wuguan provide.

Although it's quick and convenient, I try to avoid organisations where I cannot see the goods being given to the people with my own eyes.
