I'm learning on this board that these old machines and other models are useful in other parts of the world after adapting to hand crank. Also I saw where even our troops are using them to mend their gear/clothes. I've been thinking of donating one of my Singer Featherweights to some charity for good use. I am not really attached to this one as I'm not too handy with repairs. A previous owner has wedged a piece of cardboard in the motor area, I assume to keep something from vibrating. Also the light doesn't work. It does sew fine.
How do you go about finding out about donations and could I expect to get a fair amount for a donation receipt?
Thanks for any advise.
