There are lots and lots of local agencies that can use your help. A local food pantry, homeless shelter, domestic abuse shelter, soup kitchen. Churches have a charities too. Here's a thought. How about taking your money and all of you go shopping in a grocery store. Each has the same amount of money. Challenge each other to see who can get the biggest bang for the buck. Then you can take the food and donate it to the food pantry.
Or, a domestic abuse shelter always needs things like toothbrushes, hairbrushes, shampoo, soap, stuffed animals.
Hope this helps.
