Goodwill and the Salvation Army wouldn't take them here. Even a disabled veteran's group wouldn't take them. I finally found one charity that would take it.

This is going to be our problem as well. We had tried to donate it to the new police station for their training room, but they didn't want it. DH is really lusting after a new flat screen, and we've decided that for the amount of tv we watch, it's an expense that comes under the L in LBYM, so we're going to do it. Now, we are wrestling with what to do with the old rear projection unit.

I'm expecting a final bonus from my previous employer, and have allocated those dollars to the new tv. Don't know when we'll get it as DH is looking now to figure out what he wants, and then he'll do the price shopping, but we are hoping to have it installed by the Super Bowl as we both like watching football.

So if anyone has any suggestions on other charities to try for this, please post them here.
