What an item to "clear out"
!! Let's see if I can give you some ideas for this "blockage"
Most nursing home residents can only take prescription strength "softeners" that are prescribed by their doctors. The med carts can only stock what the insurance companies cover for residents and what they are issued from their pharmacies. It sounds like a great place for them to be donated to but I'm not sure any place would be able to accept medicine from anyone that they aren't contracted with.
Now, for some other ideas
You might want to try a food pantry or a domestic violence shelter. I've donated toothpaste & toothbrushes to both places before. Just give them a call to double check before you go. In regards to the pantry, this might help people who aren't able to get enough fiber due to their food insecurity to get things "moving" again. In regards to the DV shelter, just the stress that these women have been through may upset their systems enough to need this product. HTH!!
