Where to donate a briefcase?

I have a good-quality briefcase that I no longer use. It has very little wear though has been cleaned up for some mold on the interior. Is there anyplace I can donate this to where it will actually go to someone who needs it, rather than being sold in a thrift shop or sent overseas?

I was thinking of maybe an outfit that helps veterans to interview for jobs, but I am just finding charities that encourage business to hire veterans.

I found this article about organizations that accept donations of work attire. I imagine those and similar organizations would gladly accept briefcases.

What makes you think that if it's sold in a thrift shop or sent overseas it won't actually go to someone who needs it?
