If I remember correctly, we had a room captain for each common house  room.  
That person decided what donations to accept and what not to.   And the 
community gave the captains license to say "no" to anything that didn't  suit 
plan for their room.
We also made pretty much anyone with a donation move it to the  community 
themselves.  We were just too crushed for time to  organize for common storage 
and move of donations. 
After we moved in, we had a day where everyone with anything to donate or  
swap put it out in the living room and dining room.  Room captains walked  
through first and got first pick.  After that, everyone else in the  community 
to take anything they could use.  Then the event organizers  donated the rest 
of the stuff to a couple of local places.
