Does anyone know of a reputable organization accepting used video games for donations to the armed forces stationed overseas?  I did a google search and found a few recent websites, but you can't tell which ones are reputable and still active.  I have a PSP and several games that I would like to donate. 

Thanks in advance for your help.

My first thought would be the USO.  Alternatively, you could contact the Airman & Family Readiness Center on any Air Force base to see if that's something they would do...not sure what the sister services have along those lines, though.

Navy/Marine Corps has Fleet and Family Service Centers (FFSC) which should be able to point you in the right direction beyond the USO.

If there is any kind of naval base, naval air station, marine corps air station near you, an FFSC will be nearby.  Just look 'em up on the 'net and give them a call.

Any Army, Marine, Navy base also has the MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command) that handles donations.
