My fiberguild is making scarves and hats for our local Tent City(it's a place for the homeless, and they have shelter from weather elements).

Also, check in your community. Food pantries, local schools, childrens clinics, any or all might be a place where your knitted hats and gloves can come in use.  Childrens homes might be interested in stuffed toys, as are some police stations (for traumatized youngsters, they sometimes respond better to the toys than adults). I may be wrong, but I believe the Red Cross also accepts blankets as well.
