I am wondering where I can donate household items and clothing locally instead of going to the Goodwill in Wappingers.

Recommendations?

I'm familar w/Freecycle, but was hoping to avoid posting individual items because of the large volume. Also, there can be a lot of back/forth coordination with all the interested parties.
i've been to the transfer station a lot lately (neighbors dumped a lot of brush and trash on my property historically, finally got around to cleaning it out) and at a certain afternoon hour there seems to be 3-4 genial older guys who show up and do serious scavenging of the offerings, driving away with various knick knacks. one guy got what looked like a perfectly good bike

i know, not exactly what you had in mind, but all i can think of

if you have furniture or lighting there's the habitat for humanity restore in newburgh - they even pick up big items:

Have you tried the Salvation Army ? They are usually good with clothing donations, not sure about household items. Regardless of their internal hiring practices, they help anyone who needs it.
If you have books to donate, we will happily take them for our library over at Safe Harbors in Newburgh. Give me a ring if you have some to unload! 845.519.8647 I'll even be glad to pick them up.
