Where Can You Donate Your Kid's Old Toys? (Local List)

I have a bunch of toys Olive has outgrown, and I want to donate them. I know a lot of places won't take stuffed animals, and some of the toys are missing a few pieces. Anyway, I asked on Instagram where I could donate. I didn't want to donate somewhere and make money. After seeing The Maid especially, I was trying to find a place to donate where they'll truly help someone in need. I haven't double checked that all of these will accept stuffed animals etc, but this is the list I received, so double check. It looks like a couple of the Facebook groups are popular. I got a lot of those multiple times.
