Given it's commonly understood that "old helmets are unsafe", it's also surprising that old helmets would be accepted as donations.

It's quite possible they are just thrown away.
This is why I originally posted my question. If the helmet isn't good enough for me because of the age of the helmet, why would they work if donated? I think I found the answer I was looking for and am most comfortable with. Throw the helmet away.
