I mean, if I wanted to give out toys, clothes and food baskets this Thanksgiving is there a general tax-advantaged way of doing that? If not, that's ok and I'll still contribute.

I don't know if anyone has answered this already, but I'll try. Last year, I donated a rather large amount of toys to the Marines for the "Toys for Tots" program. I called "up the line" and got hold of a very nice SSgt., explained the situation and she was quite happy to send me a tax form. We will do the same thing this year, and maybe a few more things.
I have a couple of "adoptees" already, but I'm sure I'll add more this year.
