I have about 10 lbs of polymer clay (all new in packages) that I am looking to donate.  I am certain someone can use it for a good cause, but even with the wonders of google I have had no luck finding anything local.  Would love suggestions.

Whoever gets this is very lucky indeed! Of course, you hope it will be put to good use. Whoever crafts with it would need access to an oven or toaster oven. Women's shelters sometimes have kitchenettes. So do residential facilities (like those for mentally ill, developmentally disabled, teenage/ youth facilities ('group homes') and senior homes.) Polymer clay may be too tough on older hands.
Think about WHO you want to support, as a group. Is something special to you? A specific target group, age, gender, or charity? Then maybe just open the phone book if google isn't helping?
In NYC, there are even more specific charities- 'group homes' for teenaged transgendered runaways, for example. There are 'halfway homes' for ex-offenders who have committed nonviolent crimes.
Personally, I would start with possibly calling/ contacting http://www.camba.org/Programs/HousingServicesDevelopment/EmergencyandTransitionalHousing/ParkSlopeWomensShelter/tabid/188/Default.aspx

I grew up near the Armory, and these women seemed generally bored. Eventually, a few lawn chairs and benches were placed within the gate, and these women would sit in the sunshine for hours, birdwatching, chatting, just enjoying something different.
