Thanks for letting us know, Anne D!!  
There is an organization in Del Ray which helps find uses for an infinite variety of stuff:  Upcycle Creative ReUse Center. 

If you know of any scout troops or teachers that need stuff for creative projects, this place might have it.  Today and tomorrow they have free stuff to give to teachers.

They also collect a variety of things that other places might not (e.g., fabric, yarn).
