How old? There could be possible legal ramifications depending on the state, it's political leaning and laws. If they're more than 2 years old, your league might want to rethink that. The NOCSAE stamp is only good for that long and then they should be re-certified, which costs more than a new helmet, or thrown away. That said, there are plenty of third world countries like Ghana which are trying to enter the softball world and have no money or equipment. I just don't know which charities help with that.
