Are there any organizations that can use old calendars? I have lots of old calendars with lovely pictures and am wondering if there are any organizations out there that can use them for craft projects?

We use old calendars as puzzles in our special education classroom.
We laminate them and then cut them up for the kids.
Perhaps you could donate them to a school for that purpose.
They would be great for decoupage or scrap booking projects. A lot of vocational high schools offer those classes maybe they could use them.
Try your local nursing home/assisted living facility to see if they do crafts. I use mine to make envelopes.
from the link below:
Your donations can take many forms--clothing, school supplies, sewing supplies, needlecraft arts supplies, toiletries, Christmas gifts, bed sheets, bath towels, coats, hats, scarves, toiletries, books, office supplies, sporting equipment, arts and craft supplies, baby supplies and various other items.
