Recycle and help Apostleship of Sea and/or Glasgow Play Resource
The Apostleship of the Sea would welcome rosary beads to give to seafarers.  Also if you have beanies to spare, they would love to give them a new home.  They would also welcome new socks and gloves.  Drop them off at the parish house or give them to Grace.
The Glasgow Play Resource finds uses for all sorts of remnants, including  plastic bottle tops (any size and colour) and the cardboard centres of kitchen and toilet rolls.  Again collect and drop them off at the parish house or give them to Grace.
