Where to donate clothes to do the most good?

I recently lost a bunch of weight, and I have a lot of clothes that don't fit, some of which are pretty nice. What is the best place to donate them? I know Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc., will take them, but does anyone have a sense of which national organization or local outfit in Sacramento, CA, would be best?

Any place I donate should be accredited by the IRS so that I get a receipt, so I'm hesitant to use something like Freecycle. Other than that, you can define "best" any way you want. Who makes the most from the donations they get?
Oh, and a caveat to the previous paragraph is that if there are any places that really get the most out of them but CAN'T provide a donation receipt, they would still be in the running -- convince me!
