I have several containers of US stamps roughly 1940 and newer that I would like to donate to stamp clubs or organizations that work with kids and young adults.
Can anyone provide some information for a point of contact? Thanks.

"young adult" can vary by the age of the person making the comment.

I always suggest Stamps for the Wounded in operation since 1942 offering stamps and services to wounded US veterans throughout the country. It has even been honored on a Disney character postage stamp. IT can be found here: https://www.stampsforthewounded.org/

John Hotchner, if you know the name, is one of the contacts and he has been involved for decades.

Edit: 100% volunteer organization.

Parcelpostguy, excellent suggestion. I didn't think of donating to any veteran organizations, especially wounded warriors. Thank you!

Stamps for the Wounded supplies stamps to veterans in VA or any hospital or directly to the injured veteran at home. The scope of distribution to the VA hospitals has scaled back due to the popularity which took VA staff time and thus federal money; which, if you have noticed the news is in short supply for vets, especially injured ones.

Edited because I wanted to make it better.

I have participated in the Wounded Warrior Program and it is a fantastic program.

Just to be clear these are two independent and unaffiliated programs:

Stamps for the Wounded

and

The Wounded Warrior Project
