donating used uniform items

Are there any organizations in the US (or elsewhere) that accept used police uniform and duty gear, including soft body armour?

I'm trying to find homes for our issued gear that has been cycled out.

I'd rather see other coppers that need the stuff, get it, than it go into an incinerator.

Thanks

Maybe sell it and donate to a benevolent fund? Just be aware that some armor "expires" as it becomes dated.

Don’t know how many vests your talking about but if your agency isn’t doing ballistics testing on your armor, now might be a good time to start. Specifically if they are expired vests. Most other agencies will not use them form a liability standpoint. It’s also nice to know your stuff works, even after years of use.

You wouldn’t be a Mountie by chance?!?! Because I could use a Mountie uniform.
