Houston - Charities
Houston has hundreds, if not thousands of charitable organizations. If you decide to donate money or valuable items and the organization you have chosen is state recognized as a charitable institution, then the receipt of the donation that the organization should give you is tax deductible.
Author's note: In some case consider donating you vehicle upon departure rather than selling it, as the advantage to both the organization receiving it and to you (for your own tax purpose) could be more than the price you can sell your vehicle for in a short period of time.
An excellent and efficient organization to consider for donating items is Salvation Army.

Donations of clothing and toys are always sought out by various charitable organizations, for which you can use Donation drop boxes found at many Walmart stores or ask a neighbor where the nearest drop center is located.
Should you choose to contribute in other ways, such as helping the elderly or young, please see Paguro section on Volunteering.
