Any Organization to Donate Seeds to?

I just want to get rid of some seeds, I am seed happy and have bought - well way too much. I need to narrow it down to my favorites and a few others, you would think I had 10 acres to plant, but actually have just a small yard in Florida - really small. Is there any organization that will take seeds if I mail them out to them.
Thanks
I love this! - There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Check with local schools; they may have gardening programs. Scout troops, too, sometimes work with gardening projects. Churches, community gardens, seniors' centers...

See whether a local food bank has any ideas, too.

I'm starting a gardening club at my school when we get back from spring break :-) You can donate to us if you are interested and can't find anything local.

The www.wintersown.org website will give you information about donating seed to that organization. They help a lot of worthy groups with seed.
